LIFEwithBIRD X Ernesto Artillo

Australian clothing label LIFEwithBIRD has partnered with renowned Spanish artist Ernesto Artillo on a series of collaborative artworks that blend art and fashion.

Artillo’s signature fashion illustration uses entirely collaged images. His process involves merging fashion imagery with a vast array of visual resources to create a beautifully surrealist outcome. For this partnership, the label’s designers, Bridget McCall and Nicholas Van Messner, produced a series of beautiful images featuring model Lola McDonnell, then handed them over to the artist to reinterpret in his own inimitable style.

“For me, collage is a technique that allows you to break the conventions of art making,” said Artillo. “It allows you to literally break images apart for the purpose of exploring and re-arranging them in a way that is more meaningful to your current state of emotions. Collage has allowed me to express what there is behind images and in turn, expand on the emotion within an image.”

Inspired by the sense of lightness within the imagery and the use of clean lines juxtaposed with the bright colours, Artillo identified the LIFEwithBIRD woman. She was identified as someone with a strong sense of fashion and an artistic attitude, who uses clothing as an expression of her personality. Artillo’s artwork portrays this woman through a bold manipulation of those images.

There are eight images within the series with each image printed on Hahnemuhle William Turner paper. The works are available exclusively from LIFEwithBIRD.
