I’m so excited to have been introduced to Hallie Hart, an amazing artist and friend. She is being featured this year at The Red Dot Fair in Miami with her beautiful pieces, and from these works she breaths fun new life into fashion.
Read more on this talented artist below:
How did you get started in fine art?
I’VE ALWAYS PAINTED .. I WENT TO SCHOOL TO BE A WRITER AND IN SCHOOL BEGAN PAINTING ON PHOTOGRAPHS INCORPORATING LANGUAGE AND EVENTUALLY THE PHOTOS GOT PROGRESSIVELY LARGER … THEN I PHASED OUT OF PHOTOGRAPHY AND INTO LARGE SCALE ABSTRACTS.
Where do you draw your inspiration from?
I DRAW INSPIRATION FROM OTHER ARTISTS WHETHER BE IN MUSEUMS OR IN MY TALENTED FRIENDS THAT ARE ARTISTS. I FIND NOTHING MORE INSPIRING THAN A GROUP OF PEOPLE DISCUSSING FASHION AND ART, IT MAKES MY BRAIN GO INTO OVERLOAD.
How from your fine art experience and your natural artistic inspiration did you start branching
out into fashion?
I LOVE FASHION AND PAIRING UNUSUAL COLORS AND ITEMS FROM DIFFERENT SEASONS TO MAKE AN OUTFIT. I WASN’T FEELING MY CLOSET AND HAD AN EVENT TO ATTEND IN NYC, SO I DECIDED TO PAINT A GREAT PAIR OF IRIDESCENT PUPLE HIGH WAISTED RIDING PANTS AND PAIR THEM WITH A TAILORED SHIRTLESS TUX JACKET AND SOME AMAZING JIMMY CHOOS.
What is the difference between working in the world of fine art and fashion?
CREATIVELY SPEAKING I DON’T THINK THERE IS FOR ME. I SEE EVERYTHING AS A CANVAS NOW, WHETHER I PUT IT ON A PERSON, A STRUCTURE OR A WALL. FROM A BUSINESS STANDPOINT I FEEL LIKE ART AND CLOTHING ARE BOTH VERY CHALLENGING. YOU HAVE TO WORK YOUR ASS OFF EITHER WAY.
You started with the jeans and are branching out into other pieces. How does someone go
about getting a custom piece from you?
ALL YOU HAVE TO DO IS LOG ON TO OUR WEBSITE, HOUSE OF HART, AND FROM OUR SALES PAGE, I BUILD AND CUSTOMIZE ANY ITEM. I LOVE GETTING TO KNOW MY CLIENTS ONE ON ONE TO MAKE SURE ALL MY PIECES MERGE MY ARTISTIC STYLE AND THE BUYER’S PERSONALITY.
What can we expect from you in the coming year and what other fun projects do you have in
the coming year?
IN THE IMMEDIATE FUTURE WE ARE HEADING TO RED DOT ART FAIR AND MIAMI ART WEEK TO SHOW A NUMBER OF MY FINE ART PIECES ON DECEMBER 2ND TO THE 6TH. I AM ALSO WORKING ON A NEW LINE OF EVENING AND COCKTAIL ATTIRE AS WELL AS SEVERAL POP UP SHOPS IN THE NEW YORK AND LOS ANGELES AREAS.
