Fanny Gentle is an artist and illustrator living in Brooklyn, NY. She moved to NY in 2005 and began working as a fine artist, showing her paintings in various galleries in Europe and America. Her first solo show was in New York at the 31 Grand Gallery, and in 2009 she had her second solo exhibit at Jonas Kleerup Galleri in Stockholm.
When she first began illustrating, it was for her, a great marriage of form and style, and through illustration, she was able to merge her love of painting with her passion for communication and her unique sensibility. She has created painted illustrations for many notable clients in the fashion world and beyond. Inspiration comes from nature, color, patterns, dreams, books, flea market finds and all things quirky.
Among her clients are Systembolaget, Rizzoli, SVT, Pencey, Barneys, H&M, Free People, Happy Socks, Lula, Anthropologie, United Arrows, Elle UK, NYLON, Beautiful Decay, Dossier and Nido.
