SKY FARRELL

Sky Farrell is an artist who has taken on the cause that in this age of digital images, iPad magazines and the internet, PRINT IS ANYTHING BUT DEAD. Her instantly recognizable collage style is rapidly carving her out a niche that pays homage to some of the greatest images, print magazines and advertisements of our time.

Farrell gallantly shuns the use of digital scans and Photoshop that can often distort and disconnect the image from the pop-culture moment it was created in. Instead, she tackles mountains of original tear sheets and primitive color photocopies, to edit them with her expert eye into collages that explore themes across pop-culture—a colorful explosion of themes stored in our visual memory with early icons and muses blended alongside early fashions of Vivienne Westwood and Versace, then onto Martha Cooper and Henry Chalfant’s legendary ―subway art‖ and Norman Mailer’s The Faith of Graffiti.

After her start collaborating with one of Japan’s leading photographers Leslie Kee, Farrell quickly was commissioned by the likes of VMan, SPIN and Interview for their landmark 40th Anniversary celebration to transform their venues into spectacular large scale archive murals for guests to marvel at.

In 2010, Farrell was invited to stage her first solo show, entitled POP: Power of Print at the famed Bergamot Station’s Galerie Anais. In the same year, Farrell published her first book Stay High 149—the only biography of New York City’s graffiti legend, Farrell gained intimate access to the notoriously recluse artist and retraced the life of street art’s godfather. In the world of graffiti and street art Stay High 149’s Smoker tag is considered as recognizable as the Nike swoosh.

Dividing her time between Miami, New York and Los Angeles, she creates most of her work in her large Downtown Miami studio—known by local artists and musicians as the Creation Station because of its scale, inspiring atmosphere and location by the famous Wynwood Walls.

Farrell also pursues her passion for photography and styling as the guest curator for FRANK magazine’s Miami edition and regular posts on her popular blog www.viciousskylicious.com.
