Miranda Makaroff is as eclectic as her island

Giorgia Massari

Paintings, illustrations, papier-mâché designs and installations, all strictly super-colored and free from any restrictions. This is the universe of Miranda Makaroff where anything is possible. Boundaries do not exist, as do definitions. This is why it is a little difficult to limit the character of Miranda Makaroff to specific boundaries. In a broad sense, we’re talking about a multidisciplinary artist. You could say eclectic, as well as the island where she lives, Ibiza. This is where his visual narration starts, inspired by women, nature and positivity. If you dive into his world, these concepts are very clear. Organic shapes, hand-made and saturated colors, this is Miranda Makaroff’s recipe, which goes from collaborations with fashion brands to design installations.

The carefree Ibiza is the perfect habitat for its art

Daughter of art, Miranda Makaroff was born and grew up in a creative context, but above all free. This is why she finds Ibiza the ideal habitat to cultivate her vision. In an interview for L’Officiel, the artist tells that «Ibiza is eclectic and carefree», but above all what she likes is that «it is an island of tribes where we all simply share the desire to live in a certain way». It is in this free-to-censor context that her imagination proliferates, far from any kind of convention. Above all, it is the feminist cause that has the most at heart. Let us think of the collaboration with Desigual that celebrates Yoni – a term that refers to the sacred vulva – and the feminine strength. Or, she does so in her illustrations accompanied by phrases such as «I ate the apple and I will do it again», which leave no room for discussion.
