Girls Are Awesome and adidas Originals have partnered around a top to toe product collection and to increase the representation of women+.
Meet L.A.-based painter Jillian Evelyn, whose work focussed on contorted, geometric female figures, and challenges societal expectations of femininity.
As part of our global partnership with adidas Originals, we ventured to L.A. with the aim to increase female representation in the art scene. We were lucky enough to meet, hang out with, support and film this awesome crew of 5 humans, including Jillian Evelyn.
Just as we were planning the opening of their group show, our project was unfortunately hit by Covid-19, so we didn’t get to live out that part. Dammit! But we’re thrilled to have had the opportunity to capture some insights into the minds of these Los Angeles creators through these short video portraits.
“I don’t see myself as role model”
We DO see you as a role model Jillian!
[Yet I] “know people are aspired to get to that place where they are able to make a living out of art and I think that just being a female that’s able to that, you know, is good for other women to see, that it’s possible. If you really want to do it and you’re trying to figure out your style and your voice, it’s about putting in the work before you go to work”
