Appearing on Instagram, his exclusive playground, Doug Abraham’s art is based around découpage and the reinterpretation of images. Better known by his account alias @bessnyc4, the artist’s work mixes fashion campaigns and pop culture photographs.
Today, Diorsplit glasses are the subject of the artist’s reinterpretive vision, his use of superimposition echoing the play of lines and mirrors of the eyewear design that debuted in the ready-to-wear Spring-Summer 2016 show. In a series of five short films, Doug Abraham creates a mash-up of offbeat backstage scenes with photographs of the campaign by Patrick Demarchelier. His collages juxtapose contemporary images with several black and white shots of women posing in Dior in the 1950s.
Interferences and color saturations are the digital artist’s signatures.
