Who we are
Cynthia "Sin" D Rizo
Unique designs influenced by Mexican-American subculture, Morgana Sin emerged from the chaos that surrounded the founder, Cynthia Rizo. It is the individuality of the two cultures that influenced Cynthia to create Morgana Sin – imagery that stands out from the crowd.
With all the odds stacked against her, Cynthia used her upbringing to inspire her work. As a teenager, the alternative scene seemed like home and she would go to second-hand stores to inspire her own unique designs. This is when her passion for creating her own print designs was born. It was a fusion of her love for the gothic, punk and metal lifestyle and her Hispanic background which came together to become Morgana Sin.
After obtaining her B.S. in international business, she emigrated to Berlin, Germany in 2004. She meet her co-founder and partner-in-crime Arnaud Giroux, a multi-talented creative force, on December 19, 2014.
Cynthia overcame difficult times such as domestic violence and homelessness, using her experiences to drive her forward to create the brand. Born on 13th April 2015, Morgana Sin saw her wildest dreams and designs come to life. Just two years later, the duo hosted their very first showroom in Paris.
The message behind this inspiring story? No matter what, in times of difficulty, use it to drive you forward!
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.
