Krystine Kryttre (born 1958) is an American alternative comics artist, painter, writer, and performer from San Francisco. currently based in Los Angeles. Her work is dark, often explicit, and visually distinctive, which has been described as "scratchboard gothic." Her work has been exhibited in galleries since the late 1980s, including a number of solo shows in Los Angeles.
She has been published in Weirdo, Raw, Wimmen's Comix, Tits & Clits Comix, The Narrative Corpse, Comix 2000, Snake Eyes, Art Forum, Buzzard, and Twisted Sisters. Her relationship with Dori Seda is chronicled in Kryttre's story "'Bimbos From Hell," originally published in Weirdo #22 (Last Gasp, Spring 1988). In 1990, Cat-Head Comics released Death Warmed Over, a collection of her comics. Another collection, The #@@! Coloring Book, was released by Last Gasp in 2001.
After making comics from 1985–1992, Kryttre shifted focus to painting from 1994–2003, and taxidermy from 1994–2002. Her most recent work has returned to painting that engages with "the mythic landscape." She has also produced a series of satirical toys called "Abu & 'Mo", inspired by the atrocities of Abu Ghraib and the Guantanamo Bay detention camp.
From 2002-2008 Kryttre was a member of the L.A.-based Corpus Delicti Butoh Performace Lab, which performed stage pieces and guerilla street theater in public spaces.
