Purchase Lady With Sphinx Original Painting Oil On Linen Mounted To Wood With Frame by Aaron Nagel graffiti street artist modern pop art. 2015 Signed Original Oil Painting Framed by Aaron Negal Measuring 26x30 "'Lady With a Sphinx" was humbly modeled after the Leonardo DaVinci painting, "Lady With An Ermine." It is my second attempt at a painting modeled after a classic, the first being my version (of Bouguereau’s version) of the Piéta. I have always liked "Lady With An Ermine;" the lighting on the figure, the stark background, the lettering in the upper left-hand corner, and of course, the Ermine (because what the fuck is an ermine?!)Trying to get the reference photo looking similar was a challenge, but an enjoyable one, as I never have a concrete idea of how I want a reference to look, so there tends to be a lot of trial and error. This time, I messed with it until the pose and lighting were right, then just took a few hundred pictures there, with very subtle pose and expression changes. This piece was painted for the “Three Figures” exhibition at Maxwell Alexander Gallery in June of 2014. It was a 3-man show, with Jeremy Mann, Sean Cheetham, and myself. They are two of my favorite artists, so it was a huge honor to show with them." - Aaron Nagel

Designer fashion as a topic in graffiti street pop art is an interesting fusion of two seemingly distinct art forms. This concept brings together the world of high fashion and the raw, urban energy of street art, creating an exciting visual and cultural experience. Here are some key ideas to consider when exploring designer fashion in graffiti street pop art: Brand logos and motifs: Incorporating recognizable brand logos and motifs into graffiti street pop art can create striking visual effects. Artists might reimagine these elements in their own unique style, playing with color, form, and texture to create something fresh and dynamic. Fashion icons: Pay homage to fashion icons such as designers, models, and other industry influencers by featuring their portraits or quotes within graffiti street pop art. This can serve as a tribute to those who have shaped the world of fashion and bring a sense of history and personality to the artwork. Social commentary: Graffiti street pop art often contains messages or commentary on social, political, or economic issues. Artists could explore the fashion industry's impact on the environment, labor practices, or consumerism by incorporating these themes into their work. Streetwear and fashion collaboration: Streetwear brands have increasingly collaborated with high fashion designers, blurring the lines between the two worlds. This creates an opportunity for graffiti street pop artists to draw inspiration from these partnerships and create art that reflects this fusion of styles. Visual elements: Incorporating elements of designer fashion, such as patterns, textiles, and silhouettes, into graffiti street pop art can result in intriguing visual compositions. Artists can experiment with combining these elements to create a unique aesthetic that celebrates the beauty and creativity of fashion while maintaining the bold, edgy essence of street art. Fashion shows and events: Use the backdrop of fashion shows, events, and exhibitions as inspiration for graffiti street pop art. This can include capturing the energy, glamour, and spectacle of these events, as well as highlighting specific moments, designs, or collections that resonate with the artist. Style subcultures: Drawing from the rich history of various style subcultures, such as punk, hip-hop, or grunge, artists can create graffiti street pop art that highlights the influence of these movements on designer fashion. This approach can showcase the evolution of fashion and the interconnectedness of different styles. Mash-ups and remixes: Similar to how DJs mix tracks, graffiti street pop artists can "remix" elements of designer fashion by combining them in unconventional and surprising ways. This could involve juxtaposing high fashion with everyday items, blending styles from different time periods or cultures, or reinterpreting classic designs through a contemporary lens. Interactive and experiential art: Graffiti street pop art can be transformed into interactive or experiential installations by incorporating elements of designer fashion. This might include creating immersive environments, allowing viewers to become a part of the artwork or using technology to enhance the sensory experience. Artistic collaboration: Encouraging collaborations between graffiti street pop artists and fashion designers can lead to innovative and unexpected results. These partnerships can push the boundaries of both art forms, resulting in unique pieces that combine the best of both worlds. Collaborative projects might include designing limited-edition clothing or accessories, creating joint exhibitions, or developing public art installations. By exploring designer fashion as a topic in graffiti street pop art, artists can challenge traditional boundaries and spark conversations about the relationship between high fashion and street culture. This fusion of styles creates an opportunity for artists to express their creativity and make bold statements, while also celebrating the beauty, innovation, and influence of designer fashion. As graffiti street pop art continues to evolve, incorporating elements of designer fashion into its visual language can result in a vibrant and exciting artistic movement that reflects the ever-changing landscape of fashion and contemporary art.
