Christy Hayek is a first generation Arab American immigrant born and raised in New Jersey/Tri-state Area. She started a career in Politics at the young age of 20 by taking a position on Capitol Hill that eventually lead her to serving as a Legislative Aide. During her tenure, shespearheaded the writing and passage of multiple pieces of legislation on immigration policy, health care reform, & U.S.-Mexico Relations.

During her time in Washington DC is when she started experimenting more with the arts, using a variety of materials to create fluid abstract art, such as full Vantablack canvas series. After the 2016 election, She spent the next 3 years living Brooklyn and pursuing more creative fields and jobs in the events and music festivals spaces, as well as managing musicians in the Electronic Dance scene. She collaborated with many artists, celebrities, and songwriters on album art, graphics, & music videos as  in thefashion, music, & entertainment industries.

In 2020, Christy moved to LA in order to fully pursue her art career and continued to use her natural elements from her beginnings in these new pieces. She continues to work in government relations and remains politically active with a focus on social justice, women’s rights, immigration policy reform and other similar issue areas.

Her main goal with her personal work is to engage the viewer's ability to recognize that the patterns and shapes which exist in her work are emulating the same energy that exists in every human, rock, living creature, and planet in this universe. By replicating these visualizations to describe this interconnectedness, she is attempting to trigger the viewer to experience life from a different vantage point and perspective from their own. Inspired by The Overview Effect (1), her work tries to emulate the same feeling of existentialism that astronauts experience when viewing the earth from outer space.

(1) The Overview Effect is a cognitive shift reported by some astronauts while viewing the Earth from space. Researchers have characterized the effect as "a state of awe with self-transcendent qualities, precipitated by a particularly striking visual stimulus".
