Elif Varol Ergen’s arresting illustrations blend themes of feminism, mysticism, and identity. The Turkish artist uses both traditional and digital means to relay these visions, armed with a robust mix of influences and approaches. She was last featured on HiFructose.com here.
Her work has evolved over the years, but these days, the artist says “illustrates rebel female characters and move away from all kind of definitions and identities of women which has been put by the male dominance. She uses mostly ‘witch and wicca’ metaphors for her rebellion ladies whose behaviours totally against the common thoughts and belief of society.”
The artist has amassed experience as both a practicing artist and an academic. A statement says that “after graduation for her PhD thesis and artistic studies she researched about underground art and contemporary illustrations in Europe and Japan.”
