Intro
Melanie Bilenker is an American artist based in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, who translates the historic art of Victorian hair jewelry into work that reflects upon the contemporary era, depicting ordinary moments of everyday life through self portrait photographs “drawn” in the artist’s own hair and set in gold and silver.
