Antonio Lopez (1943-1987) redefined fashion imagery with his portrayal of Pat Cleveland, Jerry Hall, Jane Forth, Grace Jones and Jessica Lange: the so called “Anotnio¡s Girls”. Inspired by his muses, he created a body of work by conveing the human form and the couture ornament into surrealistic, abstract, pop drawings. Antonio was not only an artist in the whole meaning of it but also a “viveur”, an icon, a witness of a time of exuberant creative productivity and consumption. The Suzanne Geiss Company is showcasing three decades of Lopez’s polymathic creative output including never seen before drawings, photographs and ephemera. The “Anonio’s World” is celebrating and honouring a sadly missed, and never replaced, fashion talent.
