Fawn Gehweiler

Riding on the metro
No Candy: illustrations, graphics, paintings and fashion by Fawn Gehweiler. Her very pink works are cute and dark.

Fawn’s signature characters combine the influence of abandoned theme parks, English eccentrics and garden parties, the kind of dreamy nostalgia that only little girls of the 70’s can create, vintage childrens books, and a long-standing obsession with otherworldly beauties such as Shelley Duvall, Twiggy, Pippi Longstocking, Vera Chytilova’s Daisies, and the wispy Parisiennes of Igor Pantuhoff paintings.
Imagine a swan boat ride to a storybook castle through a candy colored mushroom world inhabited by heavy lashed Biba girls and rock and roll elf boys and you’re halfway there.
