MIXED MEDIA ARTIST

MELISSA MINH


We partnered with mixed media artist, Melissa Minh to capture the essence of our Kalahari Watermelon fragrance & sweep you away to a desert oasis.

 

As you enter our flagship, Voluspa Fashion Island, a kaleidoscope of soft pink and yellow hues instantly captures your attention. The “desert dunes,” hand-crafted by Melissa using individual strips of hand-painted tracing paper, hang from the ceiling— softly moving in the breeze, coaxing you away to a desert daydream…

Q&A WITH MELISSA

When starting this project for Voluspa, where did you seek inspiration?

Inspiration comes in different forms, sometimes it’s singular and other times it is drawn upon through collaboration and conversation. In this case it was a collaborative effort with the team at Voluspa.

 

Within each panel you can see swirls and waves, inspired by smoke patterns left in the air after extinguishing a candle's flame. The panels delicately sway and interact with each other, bringing the overall piece and composition to life. The color pallete is inspired by the bright fresh scents and beautiful packaging of the Kalahari Watermelon fragrance.

What is your favorite travel destination, why?

 

I’ve always been drawn to both tall buildings and mountain landscapes, so when it comes to favorite travel destinations, I’d have to say New York City and Santa Barbara. I try to frequent both- Santa Barbara is a short drive from my home in Los Angeles and I find myself in NYC for work and visits to my husband’s family. They couldn’t be more opposite of each other, but they’ve always provided a home away from home feeling and are great places to recharge and find new inspiration.

 

Advice to live by?

Support other women – in business and in life. Women are often encouraged to be in competition with one another, but we can accomplish more if we encourage, nurture, protect, and uplift one another.

What artists are you most inspired by?

I love artists whose works I can get completely lost in, like Anne ten Donkelaar or Clare Celeste. Their artwork is so intricately detailed and delicate, something I try to evoke in my own work.

 

What are your favorite Voluspa Fragrances?

I gravitate towards the uplifting citrus/fruity fragrances like Kalahari Watermelon, Santiago Huckleberry and Goji Tarocco Orange.
