About me
"Vasilisa Forbes is an artist and film-maker/video-director who's also the brains behind the #WaxChick project. You might have seen her billboards popping up around London, or caught her speaking at the ICA. Controversial and thought-provoking, her focus on female sexuality in the insidious world of advertising is eye-opening to say the least." I shoot music videos and short films. I aspire to creating art with a sense of activism for social cultural change. I often use billboards and OOH media/posters to create a dialogue. WAXCHICK a subversive billboard story unfolded across London, placed by Annin Arts in 2015. With #waxchick I was driven to question the presentation of women, the body within advertising in our modern world. The Waxchick film was shown & nominated at various leading short film festivals such as LSFF, East End Film Festival and ICA. Clean Air Now is an indie, non-profit campaigning initiative created by myself and Claire Matthews, who advocate for positive environmental change in London and across the UK Clean Air Now advocates for greater transparency, awareness of London’s illegal levels of pollution through billboards, posters and street art placement across some of the cities most polluted roads.
