FLOWER POWER in New York City

A few images from a couple of the flower power exhibits visited back home in New York City recently.  First up, legendary, acclaimed fine art, pop and contemporary artist Tom Wesselmann at Gagosian's Park & 75 mixed media, sculpture images, as you walk on a thick, green turf lawn...

The exhibit has just ended but for more information on the artist or any of the Gagosian galleries visit:

Next, Academy Award, Tony Award, and Golden Globe Award winning performer, Joel Grey exhibits at Staley Wise Gallery in Soho, New York City.  Grey's passion for flowers and plants has been ongoing for decades and has a recently published, beautiful book can be found at Powerhouse Books, Amazon or the gallery.

The Art / Fashion Mix in Full Effect!

My blog is back and what better way to kick it off then with well, MY artwork!  I have been blogging, writing and featuring others artwork for nearly a decade but thought for the relaunch it's time to post a few pieces of what I have been working on, the original and my version meant to be similar / recognizable, but of course, different.

The art / fashion mix is my passion and lately, remaking some of my favorite advertisements that speak to me.  Many have embellishments such as fabric, Swarovski, inks, spray paint, stickers and whatever else comes from inspiration.  






Have a look at "my" fashion illustration picks from the past couple months and feel free to follow me at @leannavalenteart  and

Cheers and thanks for visiting!
