Striking images by Tony Viramontes
Geschreven door Geert Bruloot
Hello dear Belmodo.tv followers!
Today I would like to remind you of one of the greatest artists of the 80's period of fashion drawing, Tony Viramontes.
Tony Viramontes was born in 1956 in Los Angeles USA and shot to fame in the 1970's when he started to work for the international fashion magazines of that time, Per Lui, Lei and Vogue USA, often participating with the most famous photographers and fashion designers.
His strong and striking images made our hearts beat faster and he has worked with the famous fashion creators of that era. Yves Saint Laurent, Valentino, Versace, Chanel and Montana were all linked to his work and his portraits of Paloma Picasso, Diana Ross, Donna Summer and Janet Jackson remain burned in history.
Tony Viramontes was one of the early AIDS victims in 1988, but his sensual drawings still remain immortal and will soon be the subject of a new publication!
