Pegge Hopper is one of Hawaiis favorite artists, most known for painting Hawaiian wahine (women) within large flat-color compositions. Originally from California and a graduate of the Art Center College of Design in Pasadena, Hopper first took a job in New York designing department store murals, then moved to Europe in the early 60s where she created illustrations for La Rinascente, Italys largest department store. Hoppers background as a graphic artist is evident in her masterful use of color in large flat areas to create slightly abstracted compositions, reserving thoughtful detail for each womans face, hands and feet. Interestingly, Hopper never worked with live models. Instead, she says she developed this archetypal person.
