FEARLESS ARBITER OF STYLE AMANDA ELIASCH TREATS LONDON TO A SINFUL NIGHT AT DOYLE DEVERE GALLERY

Free-Spirited British Socialite and Ultra Glamorous Fashion Editor of Genlux Magazine in Los Angeles exhibits her Neon Sign Art Pieces at The Peccadilloes Exhibition

London – Amanda Eliasch (www.amandaeliasch.net), the accredited playwright dips into one of her most fervent passions as she prepares for an exhibit at the esteemed Doyle Devere Gallery in London on 3rd November 2011.  At “Peccadilloes”, Amanda will be showcasing her neon sign art pieces - which are based on cartoons of her by dear friend and mega art collector Kay Saatchi.  With humour and creative insight, her art will highlight the many facets of wrath, envy, sloth, greed, lust, pride, and gluttony in a creative initiative to remind people of what they have forgotten.

As a dazzling and often enigmatic fixture at the shows in New York, Paris, and London, Amanda has successfully navigated the perils of the fickle fashion industry and the international glitterati, becoming revered as one of Britain’s fabled and adored modern style icons.  She splits her time between a carefully curated townhouse by the river in Cheyne Walk, a residence in Paris – formerly occupied by the similarly rebellious artist Tamara de Lempicka – and her home in Beverly Hills, previously owned by the legendary actress Janet Leigh.

Amanda’s impulsive and restless nature is all but palpable in her life and artistry. The artist began her earlier years in creative institutions such as the Royal Academy for the Dramatic Arts, The Academy of Live and Recorded Arts, and the Moscow Theatre - but soon turned her sights to photography.  To date, Amanda has released three books.  The first was Assouline’s “British Artists at Work” a collaboration with Italian Vogue Editor Franca Sozzani.  “Made by Indians and Made by Brazilians” featured work with Enrico Navarra Galleries. Her poetry book entitled “Cloak and Dagger Butterfly” was published by the philanthropic initiative Chipmunka and is to be followed by another entitled “The Sins of a Butterfly”.  Amanda has also showcased her dramatic black and white prints in four exhibitions across London to much acclaim, and most recently, she extends her talents to playwriting as her first work “As I Like It” ran for two weeks at The Chelsea Theatre in July 2011. 

While there is no lack of drama in her rhapsodic lifestyle, Amanda Eliasch is astonishingly candid in her art.  Delving into her prints and poetry is like having a peek at the mind of a glamorous free spirit and renegade artist – whose fearless pursuit of life’s curiosities makes her a fascinating modern icon.  

“Peccadilloes” will take place at the Doyle Devere Gallery on November 3, 2011 located at 30 Ledbury Road, London W11 2AB.
