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.
Penelope when you started with art, what about your background?
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?
In your creations there are many women, are “bad”, determined, shameless, isn’t it?
There is much irony in your creations, is this that you want to convey through your creations? Do not take yourself too seriously?
What is fashion for you? What about your style?
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?
