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 NINE — BUY NOW

In our Spring issue, there’s much to be in high spirits about. We go behind the scenes of Wes Anderson’s Isle of Dogs, a movie fuelled by dopamine, alpha dogs, and a vast crew of artisans and animators. We hang with a pack of trippy-looking poodles created by artist Susumu Kamijo. We find five mutts who changed history by injecting their human counterparts with a good dose of serotonin. There is plenty of oxytocin going around, too. We celebrate Sulek’s photography of rescued Spanish galgos, Jo Longshurst’s abstract twist on pet portraiture, and Ho Hai Tran’s love of stripes and spots. We travel to Berlin, Toronto, London, and upstate New York to meet creative types whose bonds with their four-legged mates are as heartfelt as they are intoxicating. We ask five foodies to fess up about dog snacks and guilty pleasures that feed body and soul, and we embrace illustrator Apolline Muet’s bear hugs between humans and animals.
All this, and more, inside the covers.
