Craig Redman: Pop Portraits

The Darcel Artist Unveils His Day-Glo Caricatures of Fashion Icons

Australian graphic artist Craig Redman’s pop art-inspired portraits of leading Italian fashion figures offer a psychedelic take on the front rows of Milan Fashion Week. Taken from his upcoming solo show, Protagonist, at Milan’s Slam Jam Store, the works feature celebrated designers such as Riccardo Tisci and Miuccia Prada alongside iconic personalities including Valentino and Anna Piaggi.
