Bekky Beukes immigrated from South Africa to the United States in 2014. She spent her early 20's building her fashion label CHIMERA in South Africa, which gained instant recognition after her debut show at MTN Durban Fashion Week in 2007 for her use of contrasting fabrication and her not-so-subtle 'anti-war' theme. She sent her models down the ramp draped in lace wearing gas masks once worn by soldiers... "I want my audience to feel things, I want them to be uncomfortable..."
Beukes spent 2014 cultivating her trade through a new creative vessel and re engaged with her first love, painting.
Her smooth illustrative style which is largely attributed to her fashion background combined with her bold use of contrasting color has become her signature.
