‘Body Art’ | Ataui Deng By Mario Sorrenti For Purple Fashion Magazine #19 | Spring 2013

by Kate Van Raden

It’s rare these days that anyone in fashion does anything very ‘new’ or ‘different’ (subjective terms, I know), but here we have a truly original vision of artistic expression. The story that Mario has managed to create with distinctive model Ataui Deng, may cause a unique response in each person, but it will be powerful one no doubt. For me, these images are rife with angst, they are volatile, raw and audacious…which, those of you who read my blog regularly know, is my spirit song ;) Enjoy!
