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.
