SomoS Artist-in-Residence Anaïs Hazo was born 1989 in Paris; Hazo lives and works between Paris, Berlin and New-York. She considers the broad variety of her chosen media (drawing, photography, installation…) as a whole that she uses to focus on life and reality. In between fine arts and design, she has been working in many creative fields: she published fine art prints and books, and freelances as an art director, a fashion stylist, and a lifestyle and food consultant. To experiment one’s environment, one’s everyday life, to eat, to make, to inhabit, to wear… are her numerous but all related fields of reflexion and action.
In Berlin, Hazo is currently starting a phase of research about the concept of Gesamtkunstwerk – « total work of art »: the idea of an artwork so diverse and yet complete, in which many manifestations of art blend together to disappear, and by this mean, hopefully form a new world. She participated with a contribution to a SomoS group show Neues Dasein during the 19th 48 Stunden Neukoelln Festival, 23.6.-25.6.2017.
2013 Anaïs Hazo-Santorin obtained a Master’s degree in Design and Art Direction “Fashion and Environment,” from the National College of Fashion & Arts Duperré, Paris; preceded by a 2012 Bachelor’s degree in Modern Literature (major: History of publishing) from La Sorbonne University. 2011 she received a Professional Applied Arts degree, from Tazé Engraving Studio, Paris,; 2010 a technical degree in Applied Arts (major: Engraving) from the National College of Edition and Arts Estienne (Paris). 2007 she obtained her baccalauréate diploma (major: Literature and Arts) from Lamartine High School (Paris).

As stylist, she has worked for Pin Up Studios Productions, the PIAS music label and IFM (French Fashion Institute). She was styling assistant for Olivier Rizzo in Paris and Antwerp; working on editorial shootings (i-D, System, AnOther, Dust) and campaigns (Dior Homme, Raf Simons). As styling assistant for Robbie Spencer and Agata Belcen she worked for AnOther, Dazed, Vogue Italy.
