‘The Fashion Pages’
Michael De Feo

Michael De Feo, 'Untitled' (Rocky Barnes for Sam Edelman by Patrick Demarchelier), 2015.
Spring 2016

Acclaimed NYC-based artist Michael De Feo, known as ‘The Flower Guy’, has adorned the streets of more than 60 cities worldwide with his iconic, idyllic symbolism for nearly 25 years.

The Garage presents the international premiere of his latest body of work ‘The Fashion Pages’ with a solo exhibition opening in Amsterdam Friday 8th April. This new series created atop fashion editorials & advertisements stems from De Feo’s recent takeover of the ad spaces of New York City bus stop shelters, with many of the photographers, models & brands involved applauding his unlawful ‘collaborations’. Through his floral interventions De Feo transforms these images & the models within, blurring the line between unsanctioned & authorised works.

With his installation ‘The Fashion Pages’, Michael De Feo turns the icons of our time into ethereal creatures, inviting the viewer into the floral world he cultivates.
