- In her solo exhibition, I’m a fashionista. This is how I wear it. , Anahita Azrahimi showcases her new series of vibrant collage paintings derived from cut-outs of Vogue magazine.

“I admire the art of high fashion,” says Azrahimi.  “It brings me a gleeful sense of achievement turning an inaccessible realm into an accessible illusion.  I’m fascinated by the sublime movement and subtle sensuality of the cut-outs.” Azrahimi blends collage pieces from Vogue magazine into layered, vivid abstract textures.
