Velwyn is a London based multidisciplinary artist with a fascination of psychology, culture and identity. She creates artworks and experimental projects that blur the boundaries between art, design and fashion. Many of her projects are concept-driven, characterized by playful experimentation both in traditional and digital medium.
She was born in South Sumatra, Indonesia and spent her early years in Jakarta. Due to the 1998 political riot, she migrated to Los Angeles and lived for 12 years before residing in London. After graduating from Art Center College of Design (B.S Honors) in 2012, she has collaborated with Instagram in a cover feature, CNN Style, SHOWstudio and her works have been featured in, amongst others, The Daily Telegraph, Vogue, Harper's Bazaar, AnOther Love, LOVE magazine and Tumblr radar.
She is currently exploring the possibilities of paint, in a project entitled "Dolls and Identity", tapping into the construction of cross-cultural identity, utilizing dolls as subject matter. Some of the explorations include childhood-adulthood escapism, trauma & anxieties, object sentimentality, and subverting the stereotypical idea of the passive dolls. Aside from being a full-time artist, she is also working as a private tutor and an associate lecturer at London College of Fashion.
