Marcela Guiterrez's paintings provide a window to an otherworldly interpretation of women, many of whom represent the allure of classic femme fatale imagery. Heavy eyelashes, red lips and wide eyes are all displayed here with acute detailing, and given the entrancing quality of her work, it is no wonder that she has come to partner up with Vogue Spain, Harper's Bazaar Arabia and Metal Magazine.
The smoking ladies and surprised looks that are honed in on here do an excellent job of showcasing an alternative side to womanly works of art. The Florida-born designer studied at London's Cental Saint Martins school, home to students like John Galliano and Alexander McQueen. Her distinctive style continued to grow, and she was quickly recognized upon her graduation by brands like Marc Jacobs and Nylon Magazine.
