... Expect fresh and quirky. Brooklyn artist AnnaLiisa Benston teams up with Susie Magazine for a feminist multisensory installation that includes wearable art objects and live tattooing...”
— "Satellite Art Show" by The Wall Street Journal, December 2017
Cooties sat down for a highly intellectual conversation with Brooklyn based artist AnnaLiisa Benston, who creates her work under the pseudonym Famousonmars.. Benston’s education has allowed her to become a well-spoken, woke, and confident artist. She not only creates awesomely unique and authentic articles of wearable art, but she also creates and curates interactive installations for viewers to engage with in their own way. Having hung out with AnnaLiisa and her awesome kitties, we were blown away by her attention to detail, and the unique quality of the clothes she creates. She then sat with us to chat about the development of her style and aesthetic, her places of inspiration, what she aims to achieve with her art, and what we can do as feminists to promote and practice inclusivity.
