The Girl with Coco Chanel Earring
Chicago Through a Fashion Eye
Studio Member since 2018
Ariée (also known as Aria Carter) has a singular vision for fashion and passion! Her artwork is rife with haute couture references interspersed with youthful, pop culture iconography. Her compositions construct narratives around this unexpected juxtaposition of high and low-brow cultural fixtures.
“I want to be professional about fashion illustrator, fashion designer, and fashion model. Selling artwork about this. I just draw all these Scarlet O’Hara dresses which I stole in my vision. I was going to draw Black Lives Matter. I just want story about the middle school racism. All the grades.”
Ariée works with complete focus and confidence. She skillfully balances compositions, exercising restraint to preserve and craft thoughtful negative space that accentuates her designs. An undeniable playfulness manifests in vivid colors and functionally counterbalances the seductiveness of her imagery.
“Enjoy watching of the fashion videos. I want to learn the Creative Director of Ariée and Fashion Chief Choreographer of Ariée Gabrielle Modeling Company. This why I transform from Paris, New York, Milan and London. I want to teach them about how to walk the runway. I show them how I use a pyramid—top, middle and bottom.”
Ariée’s artwork has appeared in public installations in Chicago and she was the North Shore studio’s Artist of the Month in September 2019. She also represented Arts of Life on camera in an interview with WTTW in 2020.
