Cerise Zelenetz was born in Vermont, studied in Paris, and graduated from Parsons School of Design in 2014 with a BFA in fashion design. Although Zelenetz works predominantly in watercolor and ink, she enjoys exploring new materials, and has produced work in a wide range of mediums from collage to video and sculpture. Her work has previously been featured in group and solo shows throughout New York and Paris, as well as a number of print and online publications.
Cerise has created a series of illustrations to be exclusively released on Howl Magazine NY! Below she talks to us about her nostalgic series, a bit of a departure from her otherwise punny, ironic work.
