Westfield Live Art Installation with Pippa McManus and Mekel
As part of Festival of Offers, Westfield Innaloo hosted a Live Art Installation featuring Perth fashion illustrators Pippa McManus and Kelly Coates of Mekel Illustration. The talented artists painted live in the centre, their subject; Samantha Jade from Westfield's AW14 Fashion campaign. It's fascinating to watch artists work, especially when they are two of my favourite fashion illustrators!
Their pieces will be going on auction for Westfield's charity partner Therapy Focus on Sunday, 25 May at 1:00pm at the style Lounge in front of Target.
There is something about the simplicity of pencil to paper. How a blank page can come to life when a talented hand guides the pencil. The joyful act of drawing comes so naturally when we are children but sadly it's something we tend to do less of as we grow older.
This group of present day fashion illustrators, however, have mastered their talent to create some amazing pieces of art.
