International Women’s Day is a global day celebrating the social, economic, cultural and political achievements of women. The day also marks a call to action for accelerating gender parity. To commemorate the day, 1xRUN wanted International Women’s Day is about unity, celebration, reflection, advocacy and action both locally and globally.
“My painting Message From Inner Earth was inspired by the alien folklore that there could be a civilization living within the Earth’s crust at the hollow core center of the planet. In my illustration, a child is sent from the core to the surface to deliver a message that how we treat the Earth on the outer layer may affect those who live within the core.” – Ana Bagayan
“Objects of a Dehumanized World reflects the shared experience of displacement, upheaval and finding the personal strength to keep going. This portrait celebrates the tenacity and fortitude of everyday women everywhere.” – Ann Lewis
The work showcased is as varied as the women who have created it, with stunning portraits, expressive illustrative work and breathtaking landscapes from over a dozens of 1xRUN’s most engaging female artists.
“Stop telling women to smile. We don’t like that.” – Kelly Golden
“For this piece I wanted to make an image of a powerful woman. She boldly looks death and danger in the face (personified by the snake) almost seeming to embrace it while simultaneously conquering it – at least for the moment.” – Kristen Lui-Wong
“I was inspired to paint “Smoke Rolling In” while I was hiking in Mount Rainier National park last summer. From the top of an old fire lookout on Tolmie Peak, I watched a blanket of pink smoke moving in from forest fires in the region, while the mountain floated above the haze.” – Mary Iverson
“Give a girl the right shoes, and she will conquer the world.” – Mimi Yoon
As we close in on what will prove to be another momentous day in history, 1xRUN is excited to reveal this very personal collection and call attention to a handful of the hard-working women that have been with us over the past 8 years. Read on to find out more from the artists as they discuss their latest editions for International Women’s Day 2019.
