. In GUCCIDERE
Amber Vittoria is an artist based in New York who’s worked with everyone from Gucci to Instagram. Her goal is to “portray women accurately within art” and she does ~ the women she creates are bursting with “wrong angles” bright colors and irony! With refreshingly original titles like, “Today I Missed My Workout But it Worked Out,” Amber sheds some light on how (hashtag)funny being a woman can be. Her Instagram is loaded with her work but weirdly she seems to not take any selfies, or like, over-share her problems via 3 am posts…so…we decided to throw questions at her and cut away some of the mystery!*
*Spoiler: we didn’t get far XD
SZ: Do people who suffer become artists or do artists become people who suffer?
AV: Suffering and artistry to me are not mutually exclusive; there are those who suffer, those who are artists, those who are both, and those who are neither.
SZ: What’s your dream studio?
AV: Ideally, it is a space larger than my partner’s and my apartment.
SZ: If you had an unlimited budget where would you buy your pajamas?
AV: I’d still get them as a Christmas gift every year from my parents.
“The Women You’ve Ghosted”
SZ: Do you sleep too much or too little?
AV: It depends on the day.
SZ: What do you listen to when you work?
AV: Currently, I’m listening to Holocene by Bon Iver. It’s very me circa 2011.
SZ: On a scale of 1-Tonya Harding, how jealous do you get on social media?
AV: I’d say a 2-3, but sometimes a bit more.
“Your Angles Are All Wrong”
SZ: What’s your favorite meme?
AV: I’m not too sure, actually. <– (editor’s note: this is a false statement and I’ll take it to court!)
SZ: Do you ever indulge in “self destructive” habits only to fulfill the legacy of living as an “artist”?? (For example, I drink too much whiskey ONLY because I’m a “WRITER”)
AV: No, I aim to deconstruct and rid of the stereotypes set on women and artists.
SZ: Where can we find/ buy your work??
