LADY GAGA & STEPHEN KLEIN TAKE INSPIRATION FROM EMI MIYASHITA
In Lady Gaga’s new publicity shots for her fragrance ‘Fame’ composed by famed fashion photographer, Stephen Klein, we are transported to a fantasy land of pixie-like borrowers, embarking on a mammoth expedition scaling the statuesque sculpted body of Lady Gaga.
A concept such as this is a typical example of art versus fashion, and with Steven Klein’s imaginative conception we are reminded of the work of DegreeArt’s Emi Miyashita.
Emi Miyashita simplistic pencil drawings play with proportions and create a world where tiny people exist in amongst outsized objects. Exploring juxtapositions of the body and food, Miyashita’s pieces give off an element of the tongue in cheek combined with an abundant imagination.
Emi Miyashita says of her art, “I attempt to create sexual fantasies in a non-sexual context, for example, without coitus references in my drawings. The Imageries that consist of sexual references tend to humiliate people causing them to laugh or feel disgusted, although sexual intercourse is a common human experience and vital for the human existence. Indeed, some people are delighted with my artwork. Each reactions from audiences towards artworks consist of sexual contexts are always fascinating to see.”
