Watercolor artist Fahren Feingold imparts an ethereal quality to her unique works depicting the female form. Her watercolors featuring bold feminine nudes reference imagery from early 20th century French erotica, vintage American magazines from the 70s and 80s, and today’s Internet girls. The Los Angeles native moved to New York at the age of seventeen to study at the Parsons School of Design. After earning her BFA between Parsons and Glasgow School of Art, she worked as a fashion designer for top brands including Ralph Lauren, Nicole Miller and J.Crew, among others. In 2016, her dreamy watercolors caught the eye of the legendary Nick Knight, who commissioned her to illustrate Paris Fashion Week for SHOWStudio. Her work has been featured in numerous international exhibitions including “Moving Kate,” curated by Nick Knight for SHOWStudio in London and The Mass in Tokyo; “The Vulgar” at The Barbican in London, curated by Judith Clark and Adam Phillips; “Red Hot Wicked” at Studio C Gallery in Los Angeles; as well as a number of exhibitions at The Untitled Space, including her debut solo show in 2017. Celebrated as “a trailblazing artist on a meteoric rise” by Vogue, her watercolors have steadily gained recognition from collectors and critics alike for their sensitive, dreamlike colors, graceful brush, and rendition of the female nude. Through her erotic depictions, Feingold gives new voices to women of the past and present while exploring larger notions of female constructs in contemporary society.
Her work was featured at The Untitled Space in her 2017 solo show FAHREN FEINGOLD, as well as a solo show presented in collaboration with brand Fleur du Mal in 2018 titled, PEEP SHOW. She has additionally been featured in the gallery’s group shows BODY BEAUTIFUL, IRL Investigating Reality, ONE YEAR OF RESISTANCE, SECRET GARDEN, UPRISE / ANGRY WOMEN, The Female Gaze on Love, Lust & Longing, and LIFEFORCE, as well as at SCOPE MIAMI and AQUA MIAMI Art Fairs in 2018. Her work was featured at SPRING/BREAK Art Show in “(Hotel) XX” (2018) and “EDEN” (2019) exhibitions presented by The Untitled Space, and was recently featured at Sotheby’s New York for the annual “Take Home A Nude” benefit exhibit and auction in October 2019.
