WOW! Burlesque (Por)Traits

| 4 April 2012

WOWWOW! is an exhibition tribute to the wonderful world of burlesque cabaret.
I’m the author – Roberta Della Volpe, aka Roger Roby -, graphic designer and artist.
The exhibition consists of icons / portraits based on performers and artists from the world of burlesque, illustrated in a few essential strokes inspired by physical or performance characteristics .

On display for the first time as part of Milan Burlesque Award 2012, today I publish a collection of A3 posters and postcards;
it is a work in progress that will eventually be supported by other items such as pins, badges, t-shirts etc.

There are 30 icons tied to the vast world of cabaret burlesque… but I’m not saying this figure will not multiply!

Despite being a newcomer to burlesque, with so much to learn, with much willingness and with a touch of vanity, I have even based an icon on myself!.

I’d like to thank for inspiring me:
