a.k.a. Shoplifter

His name is actually Hrafnhildur Arnardóttir and he’s the icelandic artist behind the braided hairy helmet/wig on 2004 Bjork’s “Medulla” album cover. He likes to play around with hair, twines, ropes and embroidery that resembles nerves or other forms of human connective and muscular tissues, colorful soft octopuses or balls of freeform threads and almost scary bugs-like ensembles that seem to have a life of their own and populate a whimsical world of lysergic popular legends.
