PRIZE: Rob Ryan, Because I’m so Happy… Limited edition screenprint, 2012, 20 × 20″ unframed, $400
TAG Fine Arts is kindly giving one lucky winner this limited edition screen print by Rob Ryan, the artist behind Universe Publishing’s 2013 calendar Rob Ryan.
One of Britain’s best-loved artists, Rob Ryan is a master of the paper cut, transforming people, plants, animals and cityscapes into evocative illustrative silhouettes. Into these scenes he weaves messages; some amusing, some poignant, and some laced with melancholy. From love letters emerging from romantic silhouettes to touching vignettes that capture profound feelings with a single paper cut, Ryan’s art is a uniquely charming take on the ups and downs of love and life. Drawing inspiration from everything from nature to fairy tales, Rob Ryan’s intricate and delicate papercuts strike the perfect balance between humor and vulnerability, wit and wisdom.
Rob Ryan’s first exhibition in New York City presented by TAG Fine Arts will take place September 18–30, 2012 at SOHOTEL Artspace Gallery. The exhibition will feature a selection of original paper cuts including 12 detailed original paper cuts that form the basis for Rob Ryan’s calendar, and a series of 12 related limited edition prints.

“Though some will try to deny it, I believe that every woman, at some time in her life, has had or will have the desire to pose nude.” —Bunny Yeager
Snap, click, sizzle! Once the exclusive realm of the male, pin-up photography was invaded mid-century by a shapely young miss who could, and would, model for her own photographs. Bunny Yeager’s Darkroom presents her story in her own words and, of course, her own photographs. The only female pin-up photographer of her day, Bunny Yeager was also a model in her own right. After winning several beauty pageants in Miami, Yeager went to photography school, and in 1955, she hit the jackpot with her shot of Bettie Page scantily clad in a Santa hat which sold instantly to the fledgling Playboy magazine.

“I’m from the generation that came to New York to meet their idols. In my case it was Andy Warhol and Antonio Lopez.” —Anna Sui
Best known for dazzling illustrations in Women’s Wear Daily, Vogue, the New York Times, Interview, and for high fashion labels, Antonio Lopez (1943–1987) was a major force in the fashion world for three decades. In the ’60s, Lopez’s vibrant illustrations helped usher youth culture into the pages of magazines, setting a new, free-flowing, sexually liberated standard for fashion imagery. Living in Paris during the 70s with his creative partner Juan Ramos, Lopez launched the modeling careers of Jerry Hall, Grace Jones, and Jessica Lange among others, and worked with design royalty like Karl Lagerfeld and Yves Saint Laurent. Returning to New York City in 1976, Antonio documented the sexy influence of athletic-wear, puffy, down coats, and break-dancing style, inspiring such designers as Norma Kamali and Anna Sui.
Lopez produced an incredible number of drawings, illustrations, paintings, photographs, and fantastic mixed-media journals, and the book Antonio Lopez: Fashion, Art, Sex, and Disco showcases his most iconic works, as well as never-before-seen photos, behind-the-scenes Polaroids, letters, and ephemera which, together, provide an understanding of the career trajectory of an extraordinarily talented artist.
