Cynthia "Sin" D Rizo
Morgana Sin emerged from the chaos that surrounded the founder, Cynthia Rizo. It is the uniqueness of two subcultures that influenced her style and created the basis for Morgana Sin imagery that has appealed to people seeking a brand that makes them stand out of the norm.
Looking at her, statistics already determined her destiny, failure. She was born in Los Angeles, California to a teenage mother and an abusive father. Both of her parents illegal Mexicans at the time.
She grew up in predominatly Hispanic areas in Los Angeles where gang violence was the norm. It was growing up in this environment that she got exposed to the cholo artwork and lifestyle. The word cholo is a term used for Hispanic gang members.
As a teenager she was into the metal, punk, and goth scene. She would go to second hand stores to come up with her own unique styles. This is where her passion for designing materialized. It was the fusion of these two elements that would eventually become Morgana Sin.
After obtaining her B.S. in international business, she emigrated to Berlin, Germany. She meet her co-founder, Arnaud Giroux, a multi-talented creative force, on December 19, 2014.
In March of 2015, Cynthia was going through a rough patch in her life. She ended up at a homeless shelter for women. She was at her lowest at this point. It was during this time of uncertainly that the idea for Morgana Sin came to be. She remembered the environment she grew up in and her love for design as a teenager.
It was during this period of her tumultuous life that Arnaud and her became good friends.
Morgana Sin was conceived on April 13, 2015 with Arnaud. He taught Cynthia how to put her creative thoughts to photoshop and he brought her ideas to life. Morgana Sin was born when they hosted a showroom on June 2, 2017 in Paris, France.
Born In Marseille from a photographer mom and a musician dad, raised in a "Son's Of Anarchy kid friendly" environment, Arnaud discovered Last Gasp Comics, Hieronymus Bosch, Klimt and all the American Sub-Culture Graphic Gurus of the 70's at a very early age.
He naturally started painting custom motorcycles, choppers and Key-Art for French notorious motorcycle clubs in his teen age to eventually make a split between both the graphic and musical worlds.
After nearly two decades living in New York, henceforth, he roams about Europe and the USA, in balance on invisible bridges connecting Art forms. Cynthia's kindness and unique vision has been a major inspiration for Arnaud.
Morgana Sin is a translation of his views on modern days iconography.
