Classic Beauty

Su Mon Han

Personal Statement

I created an art nouveau-style poster advertising a local, body-positive lingerie shop. To carry over the spirit of the shop’s mission, I chose to feature a model of different body type and skin color/race from what is traditionally found in posters from the art nouveau heyday, and created an original vector illustration that treated her with the reverence for her beauty that any of Alphonse Mucha’s “classic beauty” models would have expected for themselves.
