Artist Stefania Tejada immerses us into the journey of Maison’s Kitsuné’s emblematic world. Through exuberant visual tales of shapeshifting and transformation we witness the power of nature and humanity coming together into an unequivocal wake-up call towards reconnecting with our wildlife and our wild selves.
The 8 pieces that constitute the show “Territorial Beings” are meant to open a dialogue between cultures and ultimately transplanting the brand’s beliefs within the artist’s own land. Her work is a play on possibilities, reinterpreting moments and breeding new life into established imagery. As a signature of her work, the portraits gaze back at the viewer, they stared, they hunt, and they intend to hide as much as to reveal. “Catch me if you can” says the shapeshifter.
Her poetic and enigmatic scenes become beautifully complex metaphors that call back to nature as the source of all life and knowledge. Trust her and you will never be lost. In a way, she asks all women and men to step out of the established shadow into a new world, a better world where self-discovery is mandatory.
Born in 1990 in Colombia, Stefania explores the evolution of the female spirit and the rediscovery of women’s strengths, power and wisdom. The strong personalities and the vibrant colours come from her Latin American origins, showcasing the complexity and mystery of her cultural background. She feels a strong connection and respect towards artists Rousseau, Dalí and Gauguin whose masterpieces have inspired her work through the years.
