Yoyo Nasty x Quinta Maso
Yoyo Nasty’s playful world comes out of the canvas and onto a silk scarf for this special edition, a unique opportunity to experience her art beyond gallery walls. The design explores collage as a method and uses high contrasting colors like black and hot pink, and is digitally printed in 100% Italian crêpe-de-chine silk, contained in one of Quinta Maso’s iconic cobalt blue boxes, with a twist: each box has been individually hand-painted by the artist using one of the design’s main motifs.
“Something I love about this collaboration is that this makes my work more accessible. This is a chance for people who aren’t collectors to invest in an exclusive art piece, through a Quinta Maso scarf!” Yoyo smiles. “The scarf is one of my most important accessories. It has been a staple in my wardrobe for years, something I love to collect. I honestly feel like an outfit isn’t complete without it.”
Yoyo Nasty has gained recognition for her colorful paintings of dreamy botanics and playful characters. Inspired by the rhythmic power and movement of nature, she creates surreal landscapes that are full of life and imagination. The anthropomorphism of animals and mystical characters is a signature theme within her practice. Cheeky tigers sticking out their tongues, playful mermaids and free-spirited cowboys can all be found in her works.
The use of fashion elements such as the cowboy hat, high heels and pink underwear presents an exploration of identity through relatable, personal characters. Full of personality and confidence, these dancing figures express love, freedom and feminine power.
