W-O-W


Discovered this W-O-W website the other day. Artists that present a new perspective on women and their world. I've attached a couple images by French born and New York based artist Elisabeth Arkhipoff.

Elisabeth Arkhipoff is an artist and designer who lives and works in Paris and New York. She was born in Ivory Coast to a Russian father and an Armenian mother. Graduating in Contemporary Literature and Philosophy, she started her artistic career in 2000 at the Paris Museum of Modern Art: her practice embraces music, painting, sculpture, photography, video, installation and drawing which explores the functioning and selectivity of memory and its building of identity. Among collaborations with designers like Laurent F├ętis, she creates designs for music (such as DJ Hell and Tahiti 80), fashion (Anna Sui, Swarovski, Eley Kishimoto, Diesel, Converse...) and directs videos and films (for M83, Japanther among others). Her works have been reproduced in several books, catalogues and magazines including: Frieze, Grafik, Gasbook, Creative Review, IDEA, Vogue, Ryuko Tsushin, Jalouse, +81, Self Service, Dazed & Confused and SHOWstudio.com.
