Wardrobe stylist

Masked Matriarch

Last year at Art Basel Miami I ran into talented artist, Lucien Shapiro Months later I convinced him to let me borrow a few of his amazing headpieces for a very special photo shoot. 

Lucien makes masks (and weapons) out of urban and relatively unconventional materials like dime bags and bottle caps. The masks are inspired by ancient traditional tribal wear and the results are modern gear fit for the most hardened city dweller. 

Lucien is currently showing his masks ornamented armaments in San Francisco at Guerrero Gallery.

This shoot was a collaboration with a lot of talented creatives and designers. Take a look to see how it turned out! Dark Beauty Magazine featured our editorial in their September issue! Copies can be purchased here:
