Wispy, luminous, and waif-like, the portraits in HelloVon’s ‘Semblance’ show gaze openly at viewers with the curiosity and allure of striking strangers with whom fantastic adventures may be possible. Engaging, beautiful, and tantalizingly untouchable, Von’s subjects seem born from a malleable reality, perhaps composed while amiably daydreaming. The drawings in ‘Semblance’ are indicative of Von’s fascination with image construction, form, distortion and the process of drawing itself.
Utilizing a blend of traditional and digital mark making techniques, Von’s original drawings have been featured as part of Creative Review’s award-winning Monograph series and featured on billboards from London to New York in the Migration exhibition, adopted by Liberty of London for their relaunch and appeared on the catwalk at Milan Fashion Week as part of the Trussardi A/W 09 collection. HelloVon is the globally branded studio of London-based illustrator and artist Von. Von’s work has been exhibited at The London Design Museum and featured in Rolling Stone, Playboy, the New York Times and Esquire. ‘Semblance’ will be Von’s debut solo show in Los Angeles.
