Illustration and Fashion
15 JAN — 19 MAY 2019
It is in this decade when illustration and fashion ride together again. #FINAESTAMPA_ is an opportunity to confirm the strength and thrust of this bond. The work of the twenty-two artists present in this exhibition demonstrates that there is no boundary between art and illustration. What we value now is their ability to create their own language.
#FINAESTAMPA_ synthesizes a precise moment, that of fashion illustration in the second half of the 21st century, through aesthetic and technical works that are being created during this time. It is an x-ray of a discipline, which, since its origins, has been a reflection of society, with as many nuances and sensitivities as the individuals creating it.
The twenty two contemporary masters of fashion illustration that are included in this exhibition do not share one common technique or characteristic. Some of them work in pencil, others with the digital brush, others with watercolor; but in all of these cases, the result is an attractive, elegant and unique image, that is, a ‘fine stamp”. Twenty-two artists who are drawing and promoting the golden story of this discipline. And all of this, without filters or selfies.
