MEET THE ARTIST: SULTANA.BAMBINO THE DIGITAL ARTIST BEHIND OUR PRIDE T.
Sultana Bambino chose her name by paying homage to her Moroccan Jewish/Italian roots which play a significant role in her sense of identity. Her grandmother’s name is Sultana, who has a unique and outrageous sense of fashion and has been a huge aesthetic inspiration throughout her life. Bambino simply means “little boy” in Italian; while it can serve as a rejection of gendered standards it also adds a playful juxtaposition to Sultana which is the feminine form of Sultan as she feels it’s important not to take herself too seriously.
