Nina Cristante is an artist, autodidactic nutritionist, Aquarius and my best friend. Had it not been for a mutual friend linking us during her temporary stay in NYC seven months back, I may’ve never been introduced to the full spectrum of her work. Just a subtle trail of digital breadcrumbs. Slow-mo-promo. A whisper, a wink, a bikini body meme. A deliberately ambiguous website hosting austere at-home workout videos and fragments of clients’ food diaries.
Enter the radiant realm of La Familia Peluche, where characters inhabit the city of “Ciudad P. Luche”, and live the PLUSH life. Plush cargos, plush scrubs, plush free weights, plush emo mallwear. Hey @Celine, #YrLate.
