Deanna First Illustrates for Christie's Luncheon celebrating YSL Accessories Book

When Christie's approached me to create life-size couture sketches to decorate their walls for the Christie's Luncheon celebrating Phaidon's new publication Yves Saint Laurent Accessories I was thrilled!

This was the first time I was creating artwork of this scale covering 3 walls in preparation for the gathering. All pieces were created with acrylic paint and charcoal painted directly onto the walls. The looks were inspired by his famous Fall 1979 collection and were intentionally painted in a black and white minimal style which evokes a sketchbook aesthetic.
