“Nail Art History” Project By Susi Kenna And Mei Kawajiri

When Susi Kenna and Mei Kawajiri decide to do nail art, they do a lot more than determine which pink will go with their outfit. Kenna is the co-chair of the Junior Associates of MoMA while Kawajiri is a professional nail artist based in New York City, and the two have put their artsy heads together to come up with “nail art history”. Based on the works of iconic artists, Susi Kenna draws up the designs for the nail art while Mei Kawajiri handles the painting with the precision of a surgeon. Kenna says the idea is just an extension of her interests: ‘I’ve always loved art, design, and technology, and this project provides me the ongoing opportunity to bring it all together.’ Her nail art is inspired by the works of Keith Haring, the Memphis Group, Pablo Picasso, George Condo and more.
