Frida Wannerberger
London, United Kingdom

Frida Wannerberger is a fashion illustrator residing in London, a city that provides her with endless inspiration; both on the streets and at the high-end fashion shows she attends. As a respite from the city, she enjoys the calm, solitary escape of creating her illustrations at home. The contemporary styles and trendy patterns of Frida’s illustrations conspicuously project from the surface of the paper. However, it is the figures, with their languid features that define the distinctive style of her work. Like paper dolls, they are flat but expressive. There is a self-conscious manner to their body language, and their faces project something nervous and doubtful. They seem to be looking out to the viewer, asking for an opinion, or perhaps approval of their outfit. It is hard to determine if the clothing defines them, or if the garment is just an interchangeable accessory, a fleeting pretense. Through her illustrations, Frida attempts to capture a struggle she observes among the women of her generation, who view being feminine as uncool, but have to navigate through a heritage of femininity and an overexposure to fashion references. What does it mean to look like a woman in a generation where femininity feels outdated?

Comments About This Piece

Reading Dorothy Parker and drinking hot wine, in this vintage jumper from Paris.

This piece is on heavyweight paper and will need a frame for display. 

Gouache painting

Gouache, pronounced gwäSH (and also spelled guache), is a type of paint consisting of pigment suspended in water. Gouache has a consistency similar to watercolor, and is commonly diluted with water before it is applied to the painting surface. However, gouache is heavier and more opaque, with greater reflective qualities than watercolor paints. Gouache is often used by commercial artists to create design work, such as illustrations, posters, and comics.


Paper is a very common surface for all types of artwork, including photography, printmaking, drawing and painting. Art paper varies in thickness and color. Read the notes section to learn more about the paper used to create this artwork. If not noted as framed, most paper artwork will require framing.


A one-of-a-kind artwork is a unique piece handmade by the artist. There is only one in existence. The work may be part of a series, however, the piece itself is unlike any other. This piece is available exclusively at UGallery.
