"I AM INTERESTED IN INTIMACY. POSSIBILITIES OF THE UNKNOWN, THE POTENTIAL HUMOR IN EVERYTHING, THE PERFECT BALANCE OF NATURE"

Intimacy is what best describes Amanda Charchian's vision as an artist. Her focus lies in the possibilities of the unknown, the potential humor in everything and the perfect balance of nature. 

Her definition of beauty is “the uninhibited combined with grace” and she is naturally inspired by other women. She continuously reflects on the particular connection she believes that women share among themselves.

The line between her art and commercial work is often blurred. To her fashion might come off as art and artworks can feel like mass produced products – all depending on conceptual depth and artistic touch. 

Her work has been exhibited all over the world and been featured in publications such as New York Magazine, Vogue Italia, Vogue Spain, The Huffington Post, Interview, L´Officiel ART, i-D Magazine, Purple, and Oyster Magazine. She has also collaborated with the likes of Vivienne Westwood, & Other Stories, Michael van der Ham and STAUD. 

Amanda Charchian has a deep urge to express herself through her work, and the idea of vulnerability as a strength, is her main theme.
