Watercolor artist Fahren Feingold imparts an ethereal quality to her works that uniquely depict the female form. Her bold, feminine nudes reference imagery from early 20th-century French erotica, vintage American magazines from the 1970s and ‘80s, and today’s Internet girls. The Los Angeles native moved to New York at the age of 17 to study at the Parsons School of Design. After earning her Bachelor of Fine Arts between Parsons and Glasgow School of Art, Feingold worked as a fashion designer for Ralph Lauren, Nicole Miller, and J.Crew, among other brands. Her watercolor work caught the eye of legendary photographer Nick Knight in 2016, and Knight commissioned her to illustrate Paris Fashion Week for SHOWStudio. She 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, and 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 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 as she explores larger notions of female constructs in contemporary society.
