Artwork description

The red cardigan in the painting is inspired by the famous painting ‘La blouse romaine’ by Henri Matisse. The artist overtook the heart shape from Matisse’s painting but transformed it into a modern version. She added a tiny belt bag and wide pants to underlying the strong presence of the woman. She is confident, strong, ready to take over the world

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.
