Christina Zimpel is a female artist from Perth, Australia, now Brooklyn based. A graphic design graduate and former art director at Australian and US Vogue, Zimpel has been painting full time for three years. What started as a hobby with a series of self-portraits done through a mirror in pencil quickly led to her quitting her day job to pursue her art. Zimpel has a minimalistic style focused on colour, layers, and simple compositions. ‘I like layers to give the piece structure,’ she says. ‘I overlay pencil with ink, before using acrylic paint to give opacity and richness of colour.’ Hesperios’ relationship with Zimpel blossomed in 2018 when Book/Shop x Hesperios hosted an art show showcasing her botanical studies; her botanical work is still showcased exclusively on Hesperios.com.
Past collaboration/press include: Michael Kors, Maison Kitsune, Book/Shop. Featured in Vogue US & UK, Allure, Sydney Morning Herald, Luxury Travel, Papier, CFDA award portraits, Pan and the Dream.
