Natalia Fabia finds A Fashionable Aftertaste…

Natalia Fabia, who is without a doubt one of our favorite hookers (and we don't use that term loosely) will be opening her third solo show later this evening at Corey Helford Gallery in Culver City. Following upon the overwhelming successes of the classically trained painter's previous two shows, "A Fashionable Aftertaste Without End" continues upon the artist's exploration of feminine identity and empowerment in a glitzy and glamorous world.

For her third show, Fabia has looked to the horizon and focuses on the compelling subject of "kawaii" (Japanese for "adorable"). A term that rose to prominence in the '80s, "kawaii" has become a cultural phenomenon and identity for many Japanese girls as an image based on cuteness and the adorable; Fabia has re-interpreted the concept and presents a world in which these girls have begun to outgrow their Sanrio and find an identity of their own. As Fabia's subjects evolve so does the artist's repertoire. In addition to the dozen oil paintings, expect a six foot chandelier with one hundred hand crafted figurines and thousands of Swavorski crystals, a glittery and glamorous installation you don't have to be a hooker to love.
