Fluffy neon cosmos

Enter the bling and sparkle of neon-flooded bedroom. The Spanish photographer known as Harakirina takes you to the secret universe of girls' fantasia between pillows and mirrors.

Iria Oneva, aka Harakirina, is a visual artist coming from Vigo, Spain. She uses the medium of photography to construct a unique and colorful world of her own. Being her own model, art director, and photographer, her work is a DIY expression of individuality. Most of Harakirina’s photographs are taken in her own bedroom which thus breaks the wall of a priori intimate space and changes it into a stained-glass display window into the universe of neon lights, sharp knives, crumbly eye-shadows, and Y2K metallic love. As a part of Curated By Girls collective, Harakirina’s work is also about her own understanding of femininity and empowerment. Girl’s bedroom is a sacred haven where fantasies become reality and you are your own princess of outer space.

“My pictures lack conscious intentionality in the beginning. They get elaborated as I perfect my occupation and they burst in a moment of inspirational spark. This is created by an impulse, shot in my creative space which is mostly my bedroom, used as a personal hiding place where I am my own model: naughty at times, often nostalgic and always irreverent. Following a set of original aesthetic and expressionist criteria, I recreate either gloomy environments inhabited by melancholy or colorful scenes filled with my attitude, which always share the intimacy of my bedroom and my body.”
