EDITOR-IN-CHIEF, CEO, AND ART DIRECTOR OF EYES IN CORP.
EYES IN™ is published by EYES IN™ Corp. in New York and is owned by Editor-in-Chief Vivian Van Dijk, an inspirational and multi-faceted individual. With design and fashion education from the London College of Fashion and Saint Martin’s College for Art and Design, also in London, Van Dijk has a plethora of fashion and design knowledge. Taking her knowledge of design and fashion to the masses, van Dijk became an interior decorator and designer – but not before she earned a Master’s Degree in Psychology and a Bachelor’s in Business Administration. Now combining all of her experience, education, and love for the arts, Van Dijk is producing a solid, sophisticated publication that touches the aesthetics of the arts and the hearts of numerous art lovers together with the other members of the EYES IN™ Team.
More personally, as a child growing up in an artistic family in the business of arts, Vivian learned from a young age to appreciate how creative disciplines can benefit the innumerable people involved in the arts. Even as a child, witnessing the arts, artists, brands, companies and institutions educating one another to create and enjoy more future arts innovations, Vivian realized that both national and international movements in the arts influenced other artists to produce additional arts movements. Now, as an adult acknowledging this fluidity and influence of arts movements, Vivian sees a need for EYES IN™ to keep following global movements and trends so that readers, creators, artists and companies are aware of the innovations in the arts, design, society and culture and the beauty it can bring us. Because art is timeless and inspiration borderless. Aspiration will always follow.
