Hendrikka Waage (born in Reykjavik, Iceland) is an internationally renowned jewelry designer and artist living in London. Hendrikka began painting her landmark series, “Wonderful Beings,” while studying at the London Academy of Arts. This body of work showcases women with a single-ear motif. One possible interpretation is that in today’s world where individuals are bombarded with information coming from every direction, you don’t have to listen to everything. But, ultimately, the motif is open-ended and offers boundless interpretation possibilities from one viewer to the next. She has studied drawing and painting throughout her life, inspired by her late mother who also painted from a very young age. Her art and designs are influenced by the rich cultural traditions of the countries in which she has worked and lived, including Iceland, India, Japan, the UK and Russia. Her work is dominated by vibrant colors, as Hendrikka believes that rich colors enrich our lives. Hendrikka recently launched her NFT collection on Opensea were her images are computer generised. Hendrikka has exhibit in London and Iceland. She is part of NinaTokenplace artist team in London.
