Wolfgang Joop: Black Men’s Fashion – Back from New York

August 24, 2009 Art, Contemporary, Photography No Comments

On the cover of Lumas’ latest magazine:

Based on these artists and the many other experiences in his eventful and always independent life as a designer, actor, and author, Wolfgang Joop has developed a type of fashion drawing completely his own, in which “pose and personal demeanor become one.”

For him, art and fashion are most impressive when the objects have the spark of an old master, whom
he studied extensively, and possess “an aura of unintentionalness; or the intention to be completely
self-satisfied.”

The French call this l’art pour l’art. Wolfgang Joop’s sketches are art for art’s sake.

“My sketches should look as though they emerged effortlessly. They explain my sense of time, my concept of beauty, with the most minimalist and yet self-assuredly effective means.”
