Niki de Saint Phalle

October 29, 1930 (Neuilly-sur-Seine, France) – May 21, 2002 (San Diego, US).

 Niki de Saint Phalle was best known for her sculptural female figures known as Nanas. She paired bold, jubilant, and cartoonish feminine forms with dark and disturbing material in her multifaceted artistic career. Throughout, she continually disrupted long-held conventions in art, and her iconoclastic approach to her identity and society at large made her an early and important voice to both the feminist movement and the development of early conceptual art

Niki is pictured in her cheerful fantasy. 

Works: Tirs, Crucifixion, Black Venus.
