Felicia Malmström is a photo artist, born in Sweden 1989. Felicia use hair and her body as Paintbrush to be fully part of the artwork, mixing different expressions and playing with the phenomena of identity and sexuality, linked to the body and hair. Historically, hair has become of great significance for different revolts and continues to symbolize liberation. Felicia Malmström Believes there is a connection between society's norms and hair in different cultures. The expression ”Your strength is in your hair” speaks to Felicia. She stopped cutting her hair eight years ago and decided to let it grow long. As her hair grew, she began claiming her own individuality. Her long hair became part of her identity. 

In Felicias previous projects, she has often worked with a political message and collaborated with organizations such as The Animal Rights, Green Peace and Save The Elephants. She has studied fashion & commercial photography at Gamleby Photo School, photo history & image analysis at Malmö University as well as art & documentary photography at Kulturama in Stockholm. Felicia has been awarded a number of scholarships, including the ”Iris Scholarship” for young women who, through their efforts, contributed to development not only for themselves but also by being good role models for others. With this financial contribution, she traveled to New York in 2016 to carry out the projects "Act Don’t Talk" and "What About Liberty?" based on art performances on the streets of Manhattan. These projects have contributed to the debate on the global warming and highligted questions on the climate change.
