Cristóbal Lehyt hace trabajos que responden a contextos específicos, sean estos galerías, institutos, museos o espacios alternativos. Cada obra es pensada como reflejo y contraste al espacio de exposición y su potencial público, sea este imaginado, con sus dibujos por ejemplo, o con trabajos mas enfocados que hablan de lugares y situaciones.
