Southern California based artist, Danny Roberts‘s latest installment is on full display in New York City. The artist, who is most known for his illustrations of models, fashion iconography, and surrealist adaptations of runway looks, has been recruited by Tiffany’s to paint the scaffolding outside their new flagship store in the SoHo neighborhood of Manhattan (on Greene Street between Prince and Spring Streets). The painting depicts various models (some of whom remain close friends with Roberts) donning modern gowns from Dior, Valentino, and Marchesa, each subject evoking intrigue and curiosity while oozing depth.

Danny is also the curator and main contributor to his blog Igor + André, where he maintains an archive of his varied art series including characters, story books, pop culture icons, blogger portraits, and numerous interpretations of fashion based art.

One of his most noted works remains his Alexander McQueen portrait, which scored the cover of The Sunday Times Magazine after the designer’s untimely death. A Laguna Beach native, Roberts is known to spend his free time in the California and is skilled in film making and photography, in addition to his exemplary talent for painting and drawing.
