TelaModa Totes – Whitney Museum







TELAMODA is a new Innovative Affordable Luxury Brand that Combines Fashion and Fine Art Together

Telamoda is one-of -a-kind luxury fashion brand that combines the very best in luxury fashion and the latest trends in fine arts, to create customized wearable art for the customer.

TelaModa, which can be literally translated as “canvas fashion”, aims to bring fine arts and luxury fashion together to create exclusive customized wearables for clients. Prized for our team’s exquisite taste and tremendous passion, we are committed to hiring only the most talented upcoming artists to create luxury wearable art items of clothing.

Motivated by the belief that fine art should not be necessarily limited to museums, art galleries and canvases, and that fashion need not to go for a recycling of itself every few years, We have tried to create something “bold, new, unique and beautiful”. TelaModa not only caters to customers who are tired of brands recreating the same fashion over and over again, and prefer exclusivity, but also to promising young artists, by providing a new platform to showcase their work to thousands of people daily.

Moreover, no two TelaModa pieces are ever alike. A typical example of luxury wearable art, the TelaModa handbag and accessories are thus rendered a unique and timeless investment for oneself. In addition to this, we also create customized wearables based on a client’s specifications and accept private orders. For instance, by focusing on the fine art on luxury fashion items, a jacket sent by a client will be rendered as luxury wearable art for him or her. To avail of this advantage, the client is required to send a special request on the website and choose an artist, while the visual team and the artists.

Given that, like music art also brings peace and mental health to individuals, TelaModa with its penchant for creating fine art on luxury fashion items is another step in promoting a new form of aestheticism in this century.

This project to create fine art on luxury fashion items was conceived based on our mere belief that fine art does not belong trapped on a canvas. To sum up the essence of TelaModa, it is a luxury brand creating a one of a kind wearable art while empowering exceptionally talented young artists.

Stuart Davis (1892–1964) is one of the preeminent figures of American modernism. With a long career that stretched from the early twentieth century well into the postwar era, he brought a distinctively American accent to international modernism. Faced with the choice between realism and pure abstraction early in his career, Davis invented a vocabulary that harnessed the grammar of abstraction to the speed and simultaneity of modern America. By merging the bold, hard-edged style of advertising with the conventions of European avant-garde painting, he created an art endowed with the vitality and dynamic rhythms that he saw as uniquely modern and American. In the process, he achieved a rare synthesis: an art that is resolutely abstract, yet at the same time exudes the spirit of popular culture.

The exhibition is unusual in its focus on Davis’s mature career and on his working method of using preexisting motifs as springboards for new compositions. From 1939 on, Davis rarely painted a work that did not make reference, however hidden, to one or more of his earlier compositions. Such “appropriation” is a distinctive aspect of his mature art. This presentation will be the first major exhibition to consistently hang Davis’s later works side by side with the earlier ones that inspired them. With approximately one hundred works, from his paintings of consumer products in the early 1920s to the work left on his easel at his death in 1964, the exhibition will highlight Davis’s unique ability to transform the chaos of everyday life into a structured yet spontaneous order that communicates the wonder and joy that can be derived from the color and spatial relationships of everyday things.

Stuart Davis: In Full Swing is co-organized by Barbara Haskell, Curator, Whitney Museum of American Art, New York, and Harry Cooper, Curator and Head of Modern Art, National Gallery of Art, Washington, DC, with Sarah Humphreville, Curatorial Assistant, Whitney Museum of American Art, New York.
