Gucci in wonderland

Costa Rican artist John Paul Fauves embodies the transformation of his birth year. Beginning to exhibit internationally only last year, he is now a shooting star. Pop Art, Neo-Expressionism and the 80’s luxurious flair collide in his colorful paintings.


John Paul Fauves - GUCCI inspired


GUCCI in wonderland is an inspiration that came to John Paul Fauves after doing a 10 piece collection of some Alessandro Michele art campaigns.

There was so much magic realism in the GUCCI brand and concept that transcended from being a clothing label to something more surreal. It is here when the artist decides to give a hold to his new collection for 2018 named "holy exit" and dive into this new world of colors and wonders.




The book Alice in Wonderland represents the artist a world of fantasy and dreams. It seems as if the author Lewis Caroll could write like a dream.

The same concept of surrealism is what FAUVES feels about Gucci design and branding. It as if Gucci can design and create form the world of dreams, and this is what the artist wants to represent in his art GUCCI in wonderland.


The artist is characterized by using handmade masks to recreate a 3D experience of his paintings.

Artist developed the same method for Gucci in Wonderland series, making Gucci in Wonderland masks as well to incorporate the whole dream story, characteristic of the artist in all his collections.



On May 31st 2018 John Paul participated in “Arte de La Peer”, group art exhibition curated by Julia Mozheyko ( JM Art Management) at the newest design-oriented high end hotel in the heart of West Hollywood’s design district - Kimpton La Peer. It was the first show ever curated at this luxurious and artistic hotel.
