Velwyn is a London based multidisciplinary artist with a fascination of culture, psychology 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.
Born in South Sumatra, Indonesia and spent her early years in Jakarta, she lived in Los Angeles 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 Loves, DASH, 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 identity utilizing dolls as subject matter. Some of the explorations include childhood-adulthood escapism, anxieties, object sentimentality, and subverting the stereotypical idea of the passive dolls. Aside from transitioning into a full-time artist, she is also working as a private tutor and an associate lecturer at London College of Fashion.
