Another participant of this year’s POW! WOW! Hawaii (more coverage here) that stood out was legendary designer and artist Kevin Lyons.

After laying down a colorful background, he painted the outlines of his signature “monsters” filling […]

The Chinese artist was given carte blanche to shoot the garments in any way he saw so he took the opportunity to reference his 2006/2008 Colored Vases series by using the same colors splashed on models wearing what he was sent. You can read more about the collaboration here, but AWW states – “Pouring a color on an outfit creates a […]

Kate Moss, who has been a muse for many an artist, was recently decked out in new Sterling Ruby painted parkas and photographed for AnOther Magazine.
