INTERVIEW WITH DARIA USOVA: INVENTING A DREAM
Official artist of the Principality of Monaco | 18 JUNE 2022 | IRENE KUKOTA
What private and museum collections hold your works?
“Good question. These are the Prince Albert Foundation, the collection of the Prince Fuad of Egypt, the Simon de Pury Collection, the Guggenheim Museum Foundation (New York), the Ekaterina Foundation in Moscow, Moscow MOMA, Samhart Art Gallery (Gstaad), A.P.T. Gallery (Hong Kong) and many other collections worldwide”.
Please, tell us about your collaboration with major luxury brands.
“As a young artist, I collaborated with many fashion magazines. After all, my art is made up of glossy magazine images. So, I worked with Vogue, GQ, Men's Health and was involved in art projects for such brands as Martini and Mazda. Furthermore, I created artworks for the leading fashion designers, such as Paul Smith, French icon Chantal Thomass, and legendary British designer Zandra Rhodes. Recently I met with the Dolce & Gabbana Art Director and was commissioned several works for the family of the celebrated designers. I believe that the history of a fashion brand is always a puzzle consisting of inspiration, personal choices, experiments, and eventually, success, crowning all efforts”.
