Juxtapoz // Wednesday, September 18, 2013
We love these large-scale charcoal illustrations by Rotterdam, Netherlands-based artist Anouk Griffioen. A connection with fashion can be seen in her work through the clothing and the models' faces and bodies. This influence saw a turning point when she collaborated with fashion photographer Anne Marieke van Drimmelen. Ever since Anouk has seen fashion play a more visible role in her art.
