Exhausted all the redundant 70’s references at Gallagher’s and looking for a new bolt of imagery? Well it’s mid-80’s illustration to the rescue. What’s looking fresh right now is the work of illustrator Tony Viramontes whose high contrast, flat effect style would be a perfect point of inspiration for today’s Photoshop heavy photography. Known for his work in The Face as well as on album covers for Janet Jackson and that shortlived Duran Duran offshoot Arcadia, Viramontes’ work is being rediscovered by a seminal group of young photographers and art directors. Come to think of it, how sick would it be for a shrewd DJ to throw some Arcadia into the catwalk mix of the upcoming shows. Can there be anything more fashionable than the vanity projects of bored young English millionaires?
