A Venezuelan Wonderwoman to Watch Closely
She has creative superpowers and would't mind having lunch with GucciGhost
Fempire 11 Jan 2018

Designer & Artist, New York

Aniella Matejovsky is a creative superwoman. The Venezuela-born artist, who graduated as a graphic designer, draws from her instinctive gravitation towards colour, texture and shape – her art is her mood board.

Apart from painting canvases that are often influenced by the energy of places, Aniella also runs “El Museo”, an NYC-based art studio designing noteworthy accessories and well-considered objects. In the coming weeks, Aniella just launched a capsule of scarfs based on her work and here is what you get.

Oh, and did we mention, her home was just featured at The Cut? Yep, doesn’t harm either.
