The Performance Artist Exorcizing Her Demons On Stage

Celeste XXX is something that I have created as a rebellion towards conventional views of art, music, and the female form. XXX meaning sexually explicit or provocative content XXX meaning poison “punk” does not have to have a distorted fast pace guitar and angry vocals and pop does not have to be a mainstream thing....

Not Yours

Not Yours is an interpretation of femininity and the unattainable ideals imposed upon women. Using the untraditional medium of 3D, my images aim to scrutinise the role of the internet and its desire to be aesthetically perfect. Through whimsical colour and texture, Bambi moulds glamorous dreamscapes and scenarios. 3D art: Bambi Kirschner

Picasso 1932: The Master And Misogynist

Before entering the Picasso 1932 exhibition at the Tate Modern, I knew Picasso was a bit of a prick, and I knew that a look at ‘Love, Fame and Tragedy’ was going to display that in all its glory. But I also came with anticipation; I love modernist art and Picasso is a master, some...

Clothes Horse

I used to be a total clothes horse. Throughout high school, if a day came when I had nothing new to wear, I’d throw something together, or staple something together, or safety pin it. Upholstery fabric was easy to wrap into a sari. Retro polo shirts became skirts. Anything ­– a boy scout uniform, a nurse’s...

The Artist Is For Sale

The work is mainly sculptural in nature, the attached link has some images I took of me modeling the pieces. The collection is called “The Artist is For Sale”, and the sculptures are all replica body parts turned accessories. I know the weight that body image and traditionally m/f parts carry for a lot of...

Women In Menswear: Katie Eary

In conversation with Katie Eary, it is easy to see that she is just as, if not more, audacious than her riotous collections. Characterised by an unabashed charisma and a snappy wit, Katie Eary ushers in a new kind of menswear — one that is reinvented through a cheeky mix of bold prints and the...

Nothing Sweeter

Nothing tastes better than putting down sexist men, as shown in Ona Greenberg’s monthly comic. Exploring the sweeter side of life shouldn’t be accompanied by any bitter remarks. Comic: Ona Greenberg  

What Makes Me, Rachel Hodgson

When encountering art before knowing the artist, the imagination runs riot. Would they be tall or short? Happy or sad? How will they dress? On viewing the varying types of creative media that Rachel Hodgson puts forth into the world — from her specific style of photography to rude and crude graffiti — it’s hard...

Polly As In Polyester: An Interview With GFOTY

Flashback to early ’00s Hot Topic fashion that you could never quite pull off with Ambar Navarro’s shoot and interview with emerging British pop star GFOTY. 1. Hi GFOTY! I was so excited to hear about your new album “Call Him A Doctor” which dropped in Oct right after we did this shoot, can you tell us a...

At Least I Have Ringworm

Artist Jamie Morgan has created a series of dream hats for the overworked & underpaid. “Basically I’m just satirising myself because I’m choosing to work in a more expensive art field,” she explains, being a photographer who uses film is cripplingly pricey. Ironically the hats themselves are too expensive to make & so they exist...

Jouana Jasim On Finding Escapism

Somewhere in between claustrophobic boredom and an underlying creative desire Jouana Jasim found art (or maybe art found her). The things we wholly and truly love often have a funny way of finding us. We may never know we need something, and then soon enough we can’t imagine life without it. Or maybe we have...
