Abstraction, mythology and fantasy - illustrated poetry of fashion, on show at Gallery Hanahou in NYC

New York Gallery Hanahou is well known for its colourful and playful exhibits and wonderfully twisted topics. On the other hand, the upcoming exhibition is concerned with a more traditional matter, fashion illustration – which nonetheless turns out to be just as exciting. Indeed, these overwhelmingly pretty fashion illustrations are visual poetry. Curator Bil Donovan managed to rally 14 of the most talented 'Poets' to the cause.

You can’t swing a cat in the fashion world without hitting an illustrator and illustrations have become an integral part of the industry, they are omnipresent and pop up both at small labels and the big fashion houses. The medium is unique and blurs the boundary between art and commerce through visual and dynamic drawings.

The kaleidoscopic handling of abstraction, mythology and fantasy conjures exaggerated characters, presents concepts in a very accessible way and always relays the personal vision of the artist.

“In essence, Fashion Illustration is visual poetry”, says Bil. The private view will be held on the 20th of January 2011 and promises plenty of surprises!

The artists: Bil Donovan, Carlos Aponte, Cecilia Carlstedt, Daniel Egneus, David Downton, Eveline Tarunadjaja, Jeffrey Fulvimari, John Jay Cabuay, Laura Laine, Samantha Hahn, Stina Persson, Tina BERNING c/o 2AGENTEN, Tobie Giddio.
