Scenic Route

To say Oliphant Studio create large-scale paintings would be an understatement. In fact, Sarah Oliphant recently completed her largest handpainted job:  a 10,000-square-foot backdrop for the Marc Jacobs Fall/Winter 2015 runway show. Oliphant first set up  shop with Adelaide Tyrol in 1978. Based in Brooklyn, Oliphant Studio paint scenic, representational backdrops alongside more muted, atmospheric pieces  for film, TV, print, and events. They have created  custom runway backdrops for a lengthy list of fashion designers, and frequently work with photographers including Annie Leibovitz, Steven Meisel, and Patrick Demarchelier. Oliphant and her daughters Munmun and Violet spoke to us about their love for airbrushing the sky, the collaborative process, and their most important family members, Buddy and Strider.

ISSUE SEVEN — PRE-ORDER NOW

We are excited to announce our seventh issue is now available to pre-order.
This issue is about the joy of looking from the outside in. We tap into the routines (and peek inside the houses) of human–dog relationships around Tokyo. We ponder the age-old connection between dogs and horses. We journey with a wild mutt from New York to Zurich. We chuckle over poop-scoop habits around the world. There’s a lot to laugh about in this issue. Be it The McCartney’s pics of dogs in heels, artist Al Taylor’s wee art, John Bond’s drawings (feat a puppy pretzel!) or artist Wilfrid Wood’s bloated dog heads. All this, and more, inside the covers.
