Danielle Krikorian’s art historical research topics include Women artists in the Renaissance and in the 19th century, Orientalism, Erotic Persian art and Gender Dynamics in Renaissance. Krikorian has previously interned in curating and communications at the Maison des Arts Georges et Claude Pompidou, France. She has also interned as an art history researcher for the Saradar Foundation, and as an Arts Culture writer at The Daily Star, amongst more. She is most interested in the body and the female representation of the nude. Atlas is a continuation of Krikorian's work highlighting androgyny in her representation of the human body. The bearing gestures of the bodies allude to the struggle. The effect of the ink highlights the fragmented bodies. Each Atlas brings out a new story, where the titan and the human condition are brought together.
