This project is inspired by Madonna’s music and her performances, which fight unfair stereotypes about femininity.
Illustration is an important part of pop culture and in choosing Madonna, the queen of pop music as the lead character of my animation, this is not only a feminist manifesto but also a tribute to all the women who played an important role in my life.
I’m proud to be raised by women who were not afraid of making brave choices and live by their own rules. That’s probably why we love Tina Turner, who had run away from a toxic husband and archived an amazing career of her own.
I’m sure that’s also the reason why we love Madonna. A woman with a true rebel spirit, her 80’s and 90’s aesthetics inspired me to create a “Tribute to Madonna”, a three-piece animation designed about medieval holy triptych altars.
