For Oleana AW20 I have drawn inspiration from Fauvism, the avant-garde early twentieth century art movement, headed by Henri Matisse and André Derain, that would in time make way for both Cubism and Expressionism.
The Fauves (meaning “wild beasts”) thought painterly qualities and colour was more important than the representation and/or realism of a motif. The paintings has bold, undisguised brushstrokes and high-keyed, vibrant colors taken directly from the tube.
In Oleana AW20 Orange sky, flowers in different stages of abstraction meet the joy and energy of pure colour. Enjoy!
