Alessandra Travagliati
66, fire horse, Milanese.
My creative debut as art-director in an ad agency, widened into graphic/visual projects for fashion, art, design and music. Also a lightmaker; one-offs and a limited series of lamps are shining around the world. Art is in everyday life, how we feel and look at things... suddenly... an array of visual flashes, noises, thoughts, coloured visions and voracious dreams. Bliss! The Alfabeto panel was inspired by home, its items and belongings collected through the years. I’ve portrayed these familiar objects and named them in a foreign language. We assume and presume but ‘a’ is not always for apple.

Colin Self
Born in 1941 near Norwich.
He gained critical attention in the early 1960’s in Britain when he was identified with Pop Art through his engagement with imagery derived from popular culture. Self was Pop Art’s ‘Double Agent’, its Seventh Angel in Heaven, the first figurative subversive since Bacon and a progenitor of the Young British Artists. The world’s only concerted, overt Cold War artist. As true an Internationalist as true Localist. Self’s work is in the Tate permanent collection and has been exhibited in galleries worldwide, including the Pompidou Centre, MOMA, Tate Modern and The Royal Academy.
For more information, contact: Tate Britain or The Royal Academy.

Vivienne Westwood
Born in Derbyshire in 1941, she moved to London aged 17. She began designing in 1971, and the shop at 430 King’s Road became a showcase for her work. Known as ‘Let It Rock’, 50’s records and clothing were sold at a time when ‘hippies’ were still in fashion and R&R could not be heard on British radio. In ‘72 the shop and its entire décor changed into ‘Too Fast To Live, Too Young To Die’. In stock; clothing for ‘Rockers’ with zips and chains, T-shirts with slogans, and zoot suits. In 1974, the storetransformed into ‘Sex’; selling rubberwear for the office, leather bondage, T-shirts with zips, holes, situationist slogans, and pornographic images. With ’76 came punk and ‘Seditionaries’, followed by ‘World's End’ and the 1981 Pirate collection, her first catwalk show at London Olympia.
