Fashion has a tendency of taking itself too seriously. It’s the area of fashion illustration were all the fun is. If you look at sketches from top designers like Karl Lagerfeld or Giorgio Armani, you can see that extremely detailed gowns got their starts from carefree, flick of the wrist sketches. As creative director of Bobbi … Continue reading

appreciate: René Magritte

The name Magritte may not be as familiar as Picasso or Pollack, but the work is. Belgian artist René Magritte is well-known for thought-provoking paintings that titter between surrealism and realism. Some of his most famous works include “Son of Man” and “The Treachery of Image“, both pieces make the audience process and question what they … Continue reading

He photographed model Natalia Vodianova in black and white and then painted  and wrote all over her pictures with bright colored paints. After seeing these advertisements, I had to know more about the famed French photographer and it … Continue reading

Appreciate: Arman “Red Tubes of Paint” 1980

I stumbled upon this artist, Arman Pierre Fernandez or simply Arman, when I was doing research for a marketing class I took senior year. I was immediately taken by Armen’s use of materials and after I finished my assignment, I went on a hunt to find more about the artist.
