Cristina Burns, is an American-Italian multi-disciplinary artist, with a deep commitment to social and humanitarian causes. Her art has been a catalyst for raising awareness about crucial issues, from eradicating violence against women to addressing global concerns like mental health and climate change. Through her work, she explores the complex interplay of human behavior in an ever-changing world, encouraging viewers to reflect on their choices and their consequences.
.Her recognition includes the "Raffaele Pezzuti per l’Arte" award, and her works are permanently displayed at the Vanvitelli Metro Station in Naples, among others like Anish Kapoor. 
Burns has collaborated with the Department of Culture and Tourism of Naples for her solo exhibition "CandyLand" at the Palazzo delle Arti - PAN. She continued to engage audiences with her "Escapism" exhibition at the Foundation Royal Palace of Carditello.
In a strong stance against female genital mutilation, Cristina contributed with her work "Lost Venus" to this important cause, becoming the symbol of the Interdisciplinary Summit on Female Genital Mutilation held at the Italian Senate and at the Federico II University,  of Padua and Palermo. 
Burns' photograph "Candy Girl" led to an invitation from the Lombardy Region to honor and represent through her art Women Victims of the Mafia.
Her art has been recognized with exhibitions all over the world, including Leica Gallery in Milan in collaboration with Vogue Italia, Arte Laguna Prize at the Arsenale in Venice (Italy), Casa de la Cultura Teodoro Cuesta (Spain) the Koehnline Museum of Art, The Mosesian Center of Arts (USA) and at the York Gallery (UK) for the Aesthetica Art Prize. Her works have been featured in international magazines like Vogue, Vanity Fair, El Mundo, Plastik Magazine.
