Frau Isa and the Weird Crew

Originally from Southern Austria, Frau Isa started her artistic career on the streets of her hometown as a teenager, before she moved to Vienna where she is currently based. Her connection to the street art and graffiti scene and orientation towards highly stylized character design is what brought her close to the fellow artists of similar background, gathered around the Weird crew. The Weird crew convenes of German and Austrian artists Cone, Herr von Bias, DXTR, Rookie, Look, Vidam, Nerd, QBRK and Nychos with whom Frau Isa often collaborates during live-paintings sessions, festivals, and exhibitions. This time Frau Isa is presenting her works in a solo show, and let’s see what should we expect from this amazing artist.

The Enchanted World of Frau Isa’s Characters

Whether she is working on her public pieces of at home, Frau Isa’s creative world is inhabited by colorful and elegant female characters. Often reminiscent of children book illustrations her subtle and fragile figures of women are situated in a peaceful ambiance, filled with nostalgia and imaginary past. Dressed in vintage garments, the cartoonish characters of Frau Isa are a true celebration of female sensuality and delicacy. The Velvet Hands thus function as a light motif of the exhibition and Isa’s work in whole symbolizing gentle and soft approach to painting practice as well as the amiable characteristics of portrayed subjects.
