Stunning watercolor artist and fashion illustrator Fahren Feingold is launching her debut solo exhibition at NYC-based gallery The Untitled Space, opening on September 26th and on view through October 8th. Curated by gallery director Indira Cesarine, the show will consist of over 50 watercolor paintings by the artist, including a brand new series of large-scale pieces along with many of her signature works. Touted as "a trailblazing artist on a meteoric rise" by Vogue Arabia, Fahren's watercolors feature bold feminine nudes referencing imagery from early 20th century French erotica, 70's and 80's American vintage magazines, and today's internet girls.
The Los Angeles native moved to New York at the age of seventeen to study at the Parsons School of Design. After earning her BFA between Parsons and Glasgow School of Art, she worked as a fashion designer for top brands including Ralph Lauren, Nicole Miller, and J.Crew, among others. In 2016, her dreamy watercolors caught the eye of the legendary Nick Knight, who commissioned her to illustrate Paris Fashion Week for SHOWStudio. Between 2016 – 2017, her work has been featured in numerous international exhibitions from London to Japan, as well as The Untitled Space group shows “UPRISE / ANGRY WOMEN” and “SECRET GARDEN”curated by Indira Cesarine and “LIFEFORCE” curated by Kelsey and Remy Bennett.
This isn't the first time we've written about events happening at Untitled Space– they are making a name for themselves for providing talented emerging artists a platform to display their work. Back in January their show, "UPRISE/ANGRY WOMEN”, received a lot of praise– taking place amidst the outrage at Trump's recent election and the historic Women's March. Cesarine curated 80 politically charged pieces created by women– a powerful show.
Keep an eye on both Feingold, artist, and Cesarine, curator, both promising in their own right. Don't miss the show at the Untitled Space– open through to October 8th, 2017.
