Maudy Alferink: The Canvas in Depth
Maudy Alferink has been painting ever since she can remember. While painting and drawing is her passion, she also developed incredible skills in trend forecasting and and costume design.
While her work is beautiful to say the least, Alferink doesn’t focus on beauty as much as she focus on what is interesting and appealing to the human eye. Her work is a remarkable refection of that philosophy, with deep rooted stories and value engraved in each mark.
Inspired by Picasso’s muses, the latest Harper’s Bazaar editorial features a painterly approach to beauty courtesy of the hands of master face painter Kabuki. Captured by photographer Ben Hassett, the intriguing Daiane Conterato is transformed into works of art further refined by the daring Nicolas Jurnjack. Fashion editor Anna Trevelyan provides wares from the Fall collections to perfect imagery that leaves the viewer spellbound.

”On a mission to do more in my free time as a creative, instead of waiting for that next epic project coming in. I really love to get my creative brains fit and self initiate projects. This way I push myself into new directions, looking for new color combinations an ways to corporate my creative style.
This project is a result of playing around in Adobe Photoshop & Illustrator, respecting the Nike brand – but also showing the brand what a young creative like me and you, could mean for their brand. As an athlete myself – I love the brand and believe they are doing an amazing job spreading a healthy lifestyle and supporting young upcoming talents! This collection represents my favourite sneakers from their current collections.” – Bram Vanhaeren
