Vanity Scare is a pop, graphic and street inspired artist from Hull, East Yorkshire. She lived in London for almost 6 years and is now currently based in Leeds.
The inspiration for her designs began after discovering the pop artist Natalia Kills. Kills has destroyed her career several times and reinvented herself with a new alias each time. The Name Natalia Kills was her third pop star alias, and the name under which she accomplished her most dramatic fall from grace.
Kills humiliated a contestant on X Factor New Zealand, whilst she was a judge on the show and was consequently fired. The YouTube video of the incident subsequently went viral spawning the hashtag #Nataliakillshercareer.
The incident has since been widely reported to be a publicity stunt created my the x factor producers.
This incident became the initial starting point for Vanity's designs which explore the excesses of society and the downsides of fame focusing on drugs, plastic surgery and the role of technology within these concepts.
Other inspirations include, TV shows 'Nip/Tuck' and 'Black Mirror', the book 'Disco Bloodbath' by James St James and the film adaption 'Party Monster'. Additionally Vanity is a huge pop music fan, particularly artists such as Poppy, Grimes, Allie X, Carly Rae Jepson, Girls Aloud, Robyn, Miley Cyrus, Cruel Youth, Demi Lovato, Madonna, Alanis Morissette and Garbage.
