A little interview for a big personality!

Penelope let her creations  speak for her: ironic, funny, original, colorful, provocative.

Pins, patches, illustrations and many other creations  always unique, inspired by aliens, monsters, pin up, past and present… strange, grotesque? Simply the world of Penelope.

It’s not easy to describe it, you have to discover it!

The Interview

Penelope when you started with art, what about your background?

I grew up doing ballet and shooting neighborhood cats.

You are fascinated by aliens, why you love this subject?

I think a lot of people can relate to feeling alien or being aroused by something foreign.

 

Alien worlds and references to the past and what about  the present? The time we are living now, are you inspired by it?

 

I guess I never thought of it that way but I would say that yes that is true.
I deal with the reality of my current emotions through vintage imagery often made fantastical or futuristic.

In your creations there are many women, are “bad”, determined, shameless, isn’t it?
The women usually have a stubborn air about them because I am very stubborn myself.
 

 

 

There is much irony in your creations, is this that  you want to convey through your creations? Do not take yourself too seriously?

 

To take yourself seriously is to give yourself credit and makes you vulnerable.

What is fashion for you? What about your style?
Sometimes Fashion is just putting various cloth on my body so I don’t get arrested.
But sometimes I use fashion to give subtle clues to others like myself what my interests and lifestyle is.

 

 

Pins and patches have something to do with the motorcycle culture, the two wheels world is a world where you get your inspiration?

I have no connection to motorcycle culture but I kind of love their fashion and how they objectify but also kind of worship women.
It’s not necessarily what I want but I enjoy the art and their view of sexuality.

 

What are you working on and what about the future?

I’m building my own curated e-commerce website for artists called witchsy.com.

 

Should be ready this spring and I have a ton of amazing artists on board already.

Where can we find your creations?
PenelopeGazin.tumblr.com or @PenelopeGazin and you can buy some of my creations at PenelopeGazin.Etsy.com
