The United Nations General Assembly has designated today International Day for the Elimination of Violence Against Women. Today we would like to once again celebrate the women who have inspired and created in the art world.
Artist Hellen van Meene (Alkmaar, Netherlands, 1972) is known for her (mostly) square photographic portraits of teenage girls. Her work was first exhibited in 1996 and has been shown around the world since then. Her photos are in the collection of many prominent museums, including Guggenheim New York and MoMA. She lives and works in Heiloo and her subjects now include boys, still lifes, dogs and other animals.
