Artist: Virginia Arakelian
Virgina is an Armenian American artist and graphic designer based out of Orlando, Florida. She started painting at a young age – as a child she loved transforming every blank page into an explosion of colors. Her love of color and exurberance are still visible in her work today, although through the years her interest in the arts has expanded. After getting her bachelor’s degree in Art and Graphic design, she started experimenting with a variety of art mediums. She was particularly drawn to the 3D and the mixed media art.
Inspired by Pure Earth’s mission to end toxic pollution and e-waste, artist Virginia Arakelian crafted this necklace using electrical wires and small pieces that were attached to an old computer board and used TV parts.
