Isabella Celeste Maund

I am a Swiss-London based digital artist that has a passion for exploring identity, introspectivity and important social issues. I am currently in my first year at Goldsmiths University, studying Digital Arts Computing. I am actively inspired by strong female artists, specifically Niki De Saint Phalle, Frida Kahlo, Sarah Lucas and Marina Abramović. These artists heavily influenced my early artistic progression and informed my pieces between 2012 and 2014 (read more).

I enjoy an interdisciplinary approach to life which is reflected in my artworks, my education and my international upbringing in Switzerland. I began programming six months ago and at first found it hard to find a theme with which I strongly identified. With research I found Cyberfeminism, a movement that began in the late 80s/early 90s. This is a theme I am currently exploring and applying to my artworks for the first 3rd Space exhibition.
