Aerosyn-Lex Mestrovic LIVING PAINTINGS Artwork of the 2014 CFDA Fashion Awards

never static-gestural swirls of colors/images bring to mind Abstract Expressionist painters…whom Mestrovic admires greatly
 Tribeca Hotel

Not your Joshua Light Show going on here-(from back in the days)...Aerosyn-Lex Mestrovic's living paintings…are elegant, abstract-ethereal imageries that from what we gather-are  composed on a light box, manipulated by hand gestures, specially lit…and captured---very hands-on/hands-crafted…a fluid multi-media/realized inks-filmed overtime thorough a proprietary process= kinda performance piece-that reminds us of  Jackson Pollock ---in a kind of way.

Visually arresting artwork created by a guy we'd could talk with about art with a capital "A"…all night…or just as easily grab a beer and hang out with- at a ball game-though being an Argentinian native…make that fûtbol.

















For a preview of works specifically commissioned by the Council of Fashion Designers and creative agency Laird+Partners ---that conjures up a cohesive design approach for their big gala on Monday, June 2nd (think the Oscars for Fashion)…we figured this invite was cool=but had no idea how talented the very multi-talented filmmaker, calligrapher (studied at the Temple Univ. Japan), artist Aerosyn-Lex Mestrovic is. 
A Pratt Institute graduate, and winner of SCOPE’s annual See|Me: Year In Review Competition-Mestrovic artwork is gaining a rather large fan base-including CFDA's leading light and fashion icon Diana Von Furtsenberg who saw recent efforts at the latest Armory Show Gala at MOMA----which helped lead to the works on display last night.

We chatted quite a bit about his "process"--- self taught, the essence of gesture in his work, Franz Kline, film-special effects … 

Interesting--- we thought a very artistic soul-yet something very down-to earth, practical too---about his personality. No doubt the celeb heavy CFDA awards will be fun…and we suspect-one or two of the fashion designers attending- will be using some of these visuals on fabric patterns for their Spring 2015 collections.
