KRISTELL IN WONDERLAND
KRISTELL LOWAGIE is illusterator and graphic designer. Operating under the name 'KRISTELL IN WONDERLAND' she revisits fairytales and fantastic creatures. She offers photographic and digital compositions, mixing vintage, kitsch, religious iconography, modern symbols and fantastic. "Fairytales and fantastic have always fascinated and touched me, and I like to express it by poetic, melancholic and gothic atmospheres, whether in music or any other form of art. " Kristell is obsessed with the representation of little girls and their innocence. Object of predilection, they symbolize the inner child of the artist, a child loved, wounded, skinned, fearful, who asks only to flourish.
BIG EYES BLYTHE BY KITTY
Our third guest is Belgian 'Blythe' doll artist and photographer KITTY VAN DE WAART from 'BIG EYES BLYTHE'. She will exhibit and demonstrate her lovely customizing doll art, doll photography and of course she'll tell us all about her work and her inspirations. Blythe is a fashion doll, about 28 cm (11 inch) tall, with an oversized head and large eyes that change color with the pull of a string. The Blythe Dolls were originally based on the character Betty Boop and the paintings of artist Margaret Keane, which featured children with oversized eyes. It was created in 1972 and was initially only sold for one year in the United States by toy company Kenner (later purchased by Hasbro). In 2000 the photo book 'This is Blythe' was published and in 2001 the Japanese toy company Takara began producing new editions of Blythe dolls. Today there is a worldwide network of hobbyists who customize the doll for resale and create clothing and shoes for Blythe. Enthusiasts share photographs of their work and other types of dolls on the Internet.
