It seems like yesterday we have opened the art exhibition by Mabel Åsbrink, though it was on the 25th of February, 2022. Kittlande Mode or Tickling Fashion is not an ordinary art is fashion art. Sadly the exhibition is coming to the end after this Sunday.
The artist Mabel Åsbrink has a unique way of painting and her illustrations are very famous. Mabel used to be the fashion illustrator at Hennes & Mauritz (H&M), and her fashion illustration advertisements were constantly published in daily and weekly papers from 1975 to 1988, until the photography pushed away the illustrated advertising.
Mabel used to work locally and internationally with various press and advertising agencies. You have probably seen her work even without knowing it.
After 1988, Mabel started teaching at Beckmans School of Design and later on she had started to create her own fashion as well. She had created clothes for famous Nobel parties as well. Mabel is extremely productive as an artists and is willingly working with with new projects that are interesting and inspires her. Most of her art recently is paintings, but she even makes designs for furniture and other objects. Among the numerous paintings we have some chairs and jackets in our gallery.
Mabel´s H&M illustrations were a big part of the huge exhibition dedicated to Swedish illustration at Illustration Museum of Sweden in 2017.
Of course Mabel Åsbrink was exhibiting not once, and not only in Sweden, and You probably have seen her art before. Do not miss this special collection which we have named KITTLANDE MODE, if You are interested in art and fashion.
