Through a decade in Paris, then six years in New York, American artist Natale Adgnot has crafted a career formed at the intersection of graphic design, fashion design, luxury and fine art. Her studio work is informed by all of these disciplines.

Natale’s design career has encompassed stints at Christie’s auction house, in Paris haute couture (including a studio internship at Chanel), and as a design professor at the Fashion Institute of Technology in New York and the Academy of Art University in San Francisco.

Now painting full time, she is focusing on her current series Minerals, a body of work grounded in science but informed by sociology. Minerals explores the metaphors between the formation of crystals and the formation of personalities.

She lives and works in Brooklyn and plans to relocate to Tokyo, Japan in the summer of 2015.
