Christian Gering is a multi-media artist hailing from Katishyta (San Felipe Pueblo) and the Pi’pil people of El Salvador. His creative inspiration is linked to his passion for movement. The practice and art form of running has helped Christian find his connection to many creative endeavors tied to land, food, art, and self empowerment. Each time he runs and chooses to create, he is picking up from where his ancestors left off, enacting a healthy lifestyle, and hoping to inspire the new generation of indigenous peoples. He takes his experiences of running up peaks, down arroyos, and across a variety of landscapes and translates those feelings, emotions, ideas, and visions and manifests them into the physical world.
