FEMINA is the name of the BJD doll (ball jointed doll) conceived and modeled by the artist between fetish, art and burlesque. But FEMINA is also a story: from hand-painted paintings, to two short
films (the first, winner of the Showroom Award at the 2018 Berlin Fashion Film Festival), from fashion designed and created for the doll's body, to music. As he himself says "The Femina project
is the expression of my art, in the round. The dolls, which make-up, dress, make-up, putting all my artistic skills into play, want to express my world. Femina, look, listen and speak with my
heart, it is like an esoteric Golem, which comes to life thanks to my creative strength. In the two short films dedicated to her, Femina tells herself, like a body in search of a heart of a soul,
a bit like the tin man of the wizard of Oz, and does it with the beautiful voice of Christina Klassen. But Femina is also fashion and it is also music, in fact from November 9th the song Creator
will be available on all digital stores, written and sung by me, produced in London at the Sunlightsquare Records studios. An urban ballad with trap tones, accompanied by a music video, where
there will be a metaphorical exchange, I as an artist will model Femina, but in the end, Femina will model me, like I was wet clay. The video will be available on youtube from November 9th.
Janka Creator is a versatile artist. Ranging from the creation of clothes and jewels to the creation of unique models, in dioramas, by Fashion Doll. For him, art is a vehicle of expression, and this has led him to diversify, testing himself in the cinema with a short film and in music, with the composition of pop songs that highlight his versatility.
His creations have attracted the curiosity of characters of great standing in the world of the star system. His Fashion Doll with the appearance of Madonna Rebel Heart Tour, was noted and appreciated by Jeremy Scott, designer of the Moschino brand.
On the occasion of Madonna's concert in Turin, an exhibition dedicated to the singer with works of art created by her fans, which she used in the video of a song from her live tour, was set up at the sumptuous Palazzo Saluzzo Paesana. Janka Creator has created, for the occasion, an unpublished work entitled "Iconic". The doll represents the singer dressed as Marilyn Monroe, lying on the ground, massacred by leatherhead soldiers, who metaphorically represent the mass media against the icon of style ever since. This creation has received the support of Tony Villanueva, Madonna's costume and dress designer. Even Aaron Henrikson, a make-up artist linked to Madonna for several years, was fascinated by the artist's work for the attention to detail in the make-up recreated on the Fashion Doll, perfectly reflecting what the make-up artist had thought for the singer.
Fashion lover, Janka Creator, honored the Leitmotiv designer duo with the doll inspired by their S / S 2016 creations, gaining their full consent.
Recently the artist received compliments from Daphne Guinness, known in the world of fashion, for the Fashion Doll made with her likeness in the video entitled Evening In Space, directed by David LaChapelle and Nick Knight.
