Through Feb 4, 2011.
Calix Gustav Gallery is currently presenting FLASH a solo exhibit featuring the work of internationally acclaimed fashion illustrator Barbara Hulanicki. FLASH showcases a series of colorfully infused digital prints, which are a reflection of Hulanicki’s wild and free imagination. Inspired by experiences ranging from her early years into the new century, Hulanicki explores joy, mystery, magic, youth and mortality, while staying true to her signature style yet incorporating new and unexpected twists.
With her background firmly rooted in visual arts, Hulanicki began her career in the early 1960’s as a freelance fashion illustrator. Having covered a number of important collections of the era in major London-based publications including Women’s Wear Daily, British Vogue, The Times, The Observer and The Sunday Times, Hulanicki relocated from England to Miami in the late 1980’s. In what would be a long, rich and varied career, Hulanicki reinvented herself as a designer of interiors and exteriors just in time for the boom of Miami Beach’s re-emerging Art Deco District. Credited for her work in fashion and interior design that goes beyond the industries’ norms, she has and continues to achieve her goal of producing art and design as alternatives to the expected for the enjoyment of both her clients and art enthusiasts alike.
