My artist link

Thursday, April 1, 2010

For my artist link I chose, Harlet Chapman. She is a local bag designer in Swansea. I have been to her studio in St Catherine Street to do some research and interviewing her. She has been started her business in bag designing since in college. She made her own fabric design using the Photoshop. She is also having her own workshop and she has been invited in many shows (bag design). I like her to be my artist link because I think it is not always be a chance to see a bag designer and I feel lucky to be invited by her personally to her studio. His dad used to be a famous artist in Wales.It was a nice meeting with her, on 31st March.

My second bag designer link is Jan Haedrich. My Flat in London bag brand is been design by her and the company is own by her husband. I like her design because it is very stylish, girlish, luxury and funky style. It makes it easy for the jet-set girlie girl to travel the world in style. Todd and Jan Haedrich are more than typical husband-and-wife entrepreneurs. Todd is a venture capitalist, and Jan, a handbag and accessories designer who graduated from Harvard. Their company My Flat in London, based in Frenchtown, N.J., is recognized as one of most unique brands in the accessories business. My Flat in London makes chic, luxury handbags targeted to the jet-set aristocrat, and sold through high-end specialty stores such as Fred Siegel and Stanley Koshak, and in ninety-one Nordstrom stores. Recent customers include Drew Barrymore, Cher, and Sandra Bullock, who will be sporting one in her upcoming Miss Congeniality 2 movie. Jan Haedrich was recently named "Handbag Designer to Watch" by Nordstrom, where customers have been known to line up for her bags.

For my artist link, I chose Takashi Murakami. He is a Japanese pop artist. His artwork is like animation, coloruful and cuteness. I really love his artwork because it is showing the funky style of art. Takashi Murakami was born 1 February 1962 in Tokyo, is a prolific contemporary Japanese artist who works in both fine arts media, such as painting, as well as digital and commercial media. He blurs the boundaries between high and low art. He appropriates popular themes from mass media and pop culture, and then turns them into thirty-foot sculptures, "Superflat" paintings, or marketable commercial goods such as figurines or phone caddies.

Murakami's style, called Superflat, is characterized by flat planes of color and graphic images involving a character style derived from anime and manga. Superflat is an artistic style that comments on otaku lifestyle and subculture

I like this art work because it is cute and funny .It is called "Army of Mushrooms", Frank Cohen Collection, in Manchester.
