FASHION Illustrations by Don Oehl

Don Oehl’s fascination with fine arts began early in life. He grew up in Chicago and studied  dance at the Chicago Academy of  Performing Arts.  Drawn to visual arts, he went on to study painting in Paris.
Wanderlust and a desire for fresh creative energy led him to move to New York in 1995, where the vibrant mix of haute couture, downtown street fashion and graffiti greatly influenced his sense of style.
After studying Fashion Illustration at NYC’s FIT, Don worked with design companies on point of sale and window displays for clients like Aveda and Bergdorf Goodman. Subsequently, he moved to publishing, and worked as an Art Director at Conte` Nast. However, he soon discovered that fashion illustration was his primary language and ultimate way of self -expression.
Don developed his illustrations through fashion, movement, shapes, and color- all with ink. His illustrations are an homage to classical fashion illustration and incredibly on-trend. Don effortlessly blends digital process with classical illustration. He gains inspiration from his surroundings as well as from artists like Rene Gruau, Patrick Nagel, Kenneth Paul Block, Dondi White and John Luke Eastman.
On September 8, 2011, Don debuted his first solo show at Clic Gallery in SoHo. The show was a great success. He is currently among the gallery’s stable of artists.
His client list includes Bulgari, Chanel, Bloomingdale’s, Brides, ELLE, ELLE Decor, Domino, W Magazine, Glamour, Harper Collins, Huffington Post, InStyle, L’Oreal, Lucky, Madame Figaro, Victoria’s Secret Beauty, Self ,and Target.
