Daniel Chimowitz is an internationally renowned artist and fashion designer. He creates walking canvases of painted images on hand-sewn as well as up-cycled clothing, essentially combining fine art with the excitement of the fashion industry. Chimowitz has shown his designs in Paris, London, Beijing, New York, Los Angeles, Las Vegas, San Francisco and Miami and worked with famed designer Patricia Field. In his textiles, colors are combined with the punk DIY fashion of London, studs from Spain and simplistic triangles and circles of the Tlingit. There is no single focal point on his textiles, the fabric is woven with a story for the reader to get lost within. The installation begins September 19th. During that first few days, visitors will be able to view Chimowitz painting the walls for the show.
