Last Friday I attended Fashion artist Denise Fike‘s exhibit at the cute home vintage decor shop BEHIND CLOSED DOORS @ 752 S 4TH where she displayed her art entitled “Dirty Dishes”. There was also entertainment via THE PEEK-A-BOO REVUE. SO There’s a picture NSFW coming up

According to Blank Bare Clean... Denise Fike has a charming way of translating with a paintbrush- a certain beauty that is demure, coy, and classic. Her fashion illustrations are a result of her keen sensibilities for spotting inspiration in everyday life and capturing them in photography. She then later, “creates a graphic painting or collage painting using vintage wallpapers, copper, gold, and silver leaf and high gloss enamel.”

As a professor at Drexel University, Denise Fike shares her invaluable fashion illustration expertise with Design students.
