NYC’s buildings and walls become an ART gallery where the contemporary artist Jan Lisman projects his digital artworks created as a tribute to fashion houses and as an homage to The Metropolitan Museum of Art’s forthcoming exhibit, Punk: Chaos to Couture.
Irina Lazareanu is a Romanian-Canadian model / singer-songwriter. She has modeled for many top designers, including Chanel, Balenciaga, Alexander McQueen, Vivienne Westwood, Anna Sui, Lanvin, Versace, and many more.
Irina is known for her quirky, vintage-inspired style – which has arguably contributed to the rise of her modelling career. Lazareanu is often described as having a distinctive look, as Emmanuelle Alt of Vogue Paris adds; “On the runway, no matter what, she cannot be transformed. She always has her unique look and style.” As a result of her striking features and rock’n’roll semblance, Lazareanu has developed the status of ‘official muse’ to designers Nicolas Ghesquière and Karl Lagerfeld, with whom she shot the Chanel Cruise campaign.
Lazareanu became closely involved with Doherty’s band Babyshambles and toured with them in 2004. Lazareanu reportedly helped Pete Doherty write the song “La Belle et la Bête” which featured Kate Moss on the Babyshambles’ Down in Albion album. She is currently recording a folk album, entitled “Some Place Along the Way”, which musician Sean Lennon is producer and collaborator on. They have recorded a duet called “Strange Places”. Lazareanu has said that “My music isn’t commercial…I just want to learn from people and do the best I can do” and cites Bob Dylan, Neil Young, Leonard Cohen and Joan Baez as her musical influences.
18 year-old Dutch model Daphne Groeneveld was discovered in Amsterdam when a woman randomly approached her about starting a career. After just one year of modeling she has graced the cover of Vogue
Paris with Tom Ford, walked in the Valentino, Chanel, and Dior Haute Couture shows in Paris, and received dancing lessons from Madonna for a Miu Miu ad campaign video.
Her campaigns include Miu Miu Eyewear F/W 10, Givenchy S/S 11, Versace for H&M F/W 11, Louis Vuitton F/W 11, and Calvin Klein Sheer Beauty Fragrance S/S 12 and Dior Addict Parfum, in which she plays around on the beach in a high waisted bikini before skipping through St Tropez in Capri pants. In a tribute to Brigitte Bardot’s classic ‘And God Created Woman’, the film was restyled as ‘And Dior Created Woman’.
She has walked for designers such as Shiatzy Chen, Dior, Marc Jacobs, Chanel, Gucci, Fendi, Emilio Pucci, Roberto Cavalli, John Galliano, Lanvin, Louis Vuitton, Etro, Prada, Karl Lagerfeld, Versace, Anna Sui, Jason Wu and Donna Karan.
She is currently the face of H&M’s Spring 2013 collection.
Artist and Producer
Radical but subtle, Jan Lisman constantly switches from video to photography to digital painting. A true jack of all trades, he does not let anything or anyone limit his creativity. His works produced with his digital tablet reveal a world where even art can be intangible. Through the use of digital tablets to create his pieces, Jan Lisman attempts to define a new relationship to work and space.
His works create and fuel controversy between those who only see a clever «maker» and those who celebrate the advent of a true and innovative artist. In this short film ‘ART COUTURE’, he uses the NYC’s buildings and walls as gallery to project his artworks created as a tribute to fashion houses and as homage to The Metropolitan Museum of Art’s forthcoming exhibit, Punk: Chaos to Couture.
