When & Where
I AM MY ART (Founder, Vanessa Barbosa)
I AM MY ART | VANESSA BARBOSA
Native Canadian Vanessa Barbosa grew up with a global perspective originating from her Portuguese heritage. Her studies having taken her to London, England, Toronto and eventually New York City in 2009, Vanessa has developed a breadth of knowledge within the arts. By the age of 25, Vanessa was named Creative Director for women’s wear design house, Annabelle New York and notably worked for two of the most renowned fashion designers in the world, Oscar de la Renta and Giorgio Armani. Her broad experience and range has enabled her to create a comprehensive foundation in the fundamentals of fashion, and educated her in the details of fashion design.
Vanessa believes in the importance of supporting the arts and the artist’s process. She is creating the momentum to push all artists to believe more in their practice and to eliminate the filtering process that often blurs the message that the artist is trying to convey to the viewer. I AM MY ART, is designed to create an understanding that all artists are, in fact, their own canvas. This came to fruition when Vanessa began directing her premiere Fashion Film in the winter of 2014, “I Am My Art.” Her intent was to convey her experience of expressing the process of concept and creation that is manifested before the product is created. The film is an introspective look into her, as a fashion designer, and the creative process that is often overlooked due to market expectations. She created an organic, raw and honest moment with the belief that they are rare, and often overshadowed by pre-existing notions and false equations.
She is dedicated to supporting local artists and providing a platform unlike any other for the creative conceptual process of the artist. Both her adept vision in design and savoir-faire in relation to business makes her a pioneering artist intent on promoting all mediums of art.
