Shoplifter, aka Hrafnhildur Arnardottir is an artist from Iceland who works and explores the use and symbolic nature of hair. Vanity in a comical, silly, romantic, beautiful way is the main theme of her art. Her artwork makes me think and sheds light on how we use our hair as an essential feature to decorate and beautify ourselves, as well as our horses and pets (though they could care less about it).

The copper pipes are bent into contour drawing-like figures. Her sculptures consist of a variety of different animals and have quite a whimsical feel.
