Vermibus · No te debo nada

Vermibus · No te debo nada

This artwork origins from the poster launched by the luxury brand Tommy Hilfiger for the collaborative collection with the supermodel Gigi Hadid. The title No te debo nada (I owe you nothing transl.) anticipates the spirit suggested by the image: arrogance and pride. It is not by chance that there are similarities with the poster Por dentro cien cicatrices representing Kate Moss.

The upturned collar coat and the captain hat are elements universally recognized as symbols of guidance and leadership which are ironically matched with several shades of shocking pink; thus, this combination confers to the poster a pop allure. You may notice that the strokes of the spatula delineating the face are definite and precise except from the ones delineating the surface near the corner of the mouth, where the artist leaves the colour dripping on the neck.

The irony of the artwork derives from the unusual combination of a certain pop attitude with leadership symbols; thus it shows the paradoxical match of seriousness versus the frivolousness often associated with haute couture and the luxury fashion world. This poster exemplifies the way in which the artist plays with common stereotypes and public expectations.
