Artwork description

Community is a group of fashionable people in a night party gazing into a day-sky coloured smartphone. We cannot talk about fashion without talking about social media and viewing one another. It’s the perfect reflection of our contemporary society. Everybody seems hypnotized, except a woman on the left who looks at us. She knows that we wonder what is on that screen; her look includes us in the scene. The painting is inspired by a picture from Boticelli, where all the characters are watching one another and/or the spectator.

Annabel Faustin

Annabel Faustin is a French artist born in the South of France, currently living and working in Paris. She studied Art direction in L'École Estienne and worked as a Designer for Beauty and Luxury brands for 5 years. In 2019 she started to fully focus on painting. Annabel’s inspiration for her work comes from the fashion industry. She is not only fascinated by design itself but also by the fashion ecosystem and functioning. She employs almost a surrealist approach to depicting characters wearing designer inspired items. Her figures as well as their surroundings appear dreamy and calm while being vividly coloured. 

The fashion industry has been undergoing a change towards more sustainable and mindful production, and that’s what the artist is pointing at. It’s all about harmony between humans and our planet Earth.
