This is a vibe! Another time, @kushida.official takes our breath away: The artist’s collaboration ‘Made in Heaven’ with make-up artist and hair stylist @keijiudagawa and muse tanyahayataki_photo is exactly what the title promises - out of this world!
Psssst, @christiane.vleugels’ little secret! The amazing painter shares: “This is how I do the final detailing of the hair most of the time! This technique brings more texture to the painting and gives a natural flow to the hair.”
@cesarorricosculptor’s pieces bring traditional techniques and perspectives to our contemporary context. Cesar shares in his statement: “Starting from a naturalistic treatment of the body and through precise and fluid modelling, the artist gradually denudes his works until arriving at a synthesis of form, giving rise to figures endowed with an emotive aesthetic refinement. In this process, we observe a profound knowledge of anatomy, where the human body occupies the centre of César Orrico’s artistic universe, knowledge which is the fruit of the artist’s fascination with anatomical treatises dating from the Renaissance up to the present time.”
Huge congratulations to New Zealand designer @katemackenzieart whose garment, Wanton Widow, captivated the judges. They said that her winning piece - which won the 2022 Supreme WOW Award AND the Open Section, was “refined, sculptural and tells a story”, and “perfectly captures what we mean when we say wearable art”.
Isn't it magnificent? Look at the intricate details of the wooden draws from an old Singer Sewing machine that designer Kate MacKenzie used to create her garment.
These awards are part of the annual @worldofwearableart (WOW) competition, and entries are now open for 2023. Head to World of Wearableart's page for more info.
