Pipilotti Rist was born on June 21st 1962, in Switzerland. Shw was born as Elisabeth to her mom, a teacher and her father, a Doctor. She was later nicknamed Pipilotti after Pipi Longstockings. She studied at the institue of implied arts, and graduated with a BA in visual arts. Rist is a visual artist, creating works involving film and performance. Some of her more notable works include I’m Not the Girl who Misses much, and Sip my Ocean.
Rist’s Art is very visually pleasing. She uses many colors in her work, making it all very fun to look at. I think it’s interesting how she draws inspiration from herself, as her work is autobigraphical.
