If you follow us on Instagram, you've probably seen the many colourful videos with bright characters wearing our fashion. These videos, just like the artworks in our Clothing Store, are by Luna Carlos Armengod.
Luna has been part of MOEON since the very beginning, so we want to introduce her and her art here in more detail:
You create music, paintings, video works and much more. Can you tell us how you came to this diverse practice?
Well, I guess it has been a natural process. To me it's more about how I decided to allow myself to do what I felt like at the moment instead of trying to commit to only one discipline.
I grew up in a very artistic environment. my mother was an artist herself; she did sculpture, paintings, jewelry, … I guess there is nothing surprising in me following her steps. I just added the new technologies to the praxis.
How would you describe your work?
I would say that my work is a lot about the process, about expressing what I need to express at the moment with whatever media works best in the situation.
It usually has a pretty intimate character and comes mostly from personal experiences or perceptions of life.
I tend to work on different artistic pieces that are connected to each other and most of the times it's difficult to know where one ends and the other begins.
What inspires you to make art?
Life, feelings, emotions, longings… Whatever moves my heart at the moment.
When and how did you join Moeon?
It all began 10 years ago when Sonja was looking for a babysitter and put an add in the Zeit magazine :).
I had just moved to Berlin and was looking for an extra job… then I started working at Moeon when it opened, in the small shop. and slowly moved towards the artistic aspects of Moeon, now it's Instagram, but I did other things before, like the windows, video works etc.
Sonja has always supported me in my Artistic Journey And I'm very grateful for that.
In the videos that you create for Moeon, we often see colourful figures or body parts made of plasticine. How did you come to this design language? Who are these characters for you?
My mother always did play doh figures with me, she also animated some stop motion movies and did the art for some music albums. It has always been a part of my life.
There often is a sun in your videos. What does the symbol of the sun mean to you?
Well, living in Germany I just feel very nostalgic when it comes to Spanish weather. So I tend to try and bring the sun through art. Also, to me , it represents the warmth inside of us, inside of our souls.
