BIO

Amanda Charchian (b.Los Angeles) creates work with a feminine sensuality that is simultaneously epic and intimate. Amanda earned a BFA from Otis College of Art and Design in 2010, and has had features on her in publications such as New York Magazine, Vogue Italia, TIME, The Huffington Post, Interview Magazine, L’Officiel ART, i-D, Purple, and Turkish Vogue. Her editorial and commercial practice is alongside her work as a fine artist that she exhibits internationally. An exhibition of 2015’s “Pheromone Hotbox” at Stephen Kasher Gallery in NYC has evolved into the artist’s first fine art monograph on Hat&Beard Press/Dilettante Paper. Amanda lives and works between Los Angeles and London.
