Oskar Metsavaht, the founder and creative director of Osklen, is participating in a special photography project honoring the legendary Brazilian architect Oscar Niemeyer, in partnership with Visionaire (the limited-edition multi-format art and fashion publication) and Paddle8 (the online art market). In conjunction with Visionaire and Paddle8's release of a limited-edition slide portfolio of 3D photographs of Niemeyer's most iconic architectural work, Paddle8 will also launch a web-only exhibition featuring photography from Oskar Metsavaht. This is the first time Oskar Metsavaht will be exhibiting his work and having it available for purchase in the US. As a multidisciplinary creator, Metsavaht is excited to showcase his photography through this project, with a series entitled "Ipanema" that features black and white images of landscapes and portraits from Rio de Janeiro.
"In the attempt to freeze the elements of style that permeates every collection I design for Osklen, I constantly photograph things that surround my aesthetics beliefs. These images must be beautiful portraits of what I wish to create, what I wish to transmit through fashion and design. They are the result and also the source of my inspiration. This series of my photographs fro Ipanema are the opportunity to share the moment before they become decodified to design, to fashion, they're my moment of pure art." - Oskar Metsavaht
