The Girl Gang of the Crepax twins, Daizy Shely.
The first exhibition of the grandchild of the famous cartoonist has arrived in Milan.
The event is scheduled for tomorrow, November 25, at 18 Corso di Porta Vigentina Milan. The gallery Francesco Zanuso will host, until 5 December, Girl Gang by twins Rose and Carlotta Crepax. On display are 12 paintings and 12 watercolors that portray small intimate moments of daily life of the "maidens in bloom" (the subtitle): Women seen by women in moments of normalcy that tell regardless of infatuations, idealisations or distortions of each external look.
The firm hand and provocativeness of the two twenty year olds, popular through the blog Illustrated Moodboard is certainly the legacy of Guido, uncle, master of erotic comics and creator of Sexy Valentina. The design is loosely based on the Japanese manga, but the linework and the stories are very European, personal and contemporary.
First of all fashion brands such as Trussardi, 7 For All Mankind and Topshop asked for their collaboration but now the automaker Ford has enlisted them for the launch of the new Ford Fiesta. Now is the time for them to express themselves and their personal vision of the girls of the millennium. An interesting challenge both creatively and socially. Largo therefore to new talents. Made in Italy.
