Nigerian Artist Ike Ude's Image of
Jean Shafiroff  Draws Admirers


 

Philanthropist Jean Shafiroff was not even in the country last week but her presence was clearly felt at the inaugural Art Southampton. Shafiroff, a prominent figure on the New York-Hamptons-Palm Beach circuit was in Italy when her glamorous portrait by internationally acclaimed Nigerian artist Ikee Ud was unveiled at the Leila Heller Gallery at Art Southampton during the VIP Preview reception to benefit Southampton Hospital attended by 3,600 of the Hamptons & New York's collectors and power players.

 

Crowds swarmed Leila Heller's booth to get a glimpse at Ude's portrait of the woman who has become famed not only for her generous philanthropy but her elegant personal style. The portrait was displayed with additional featured works by artists including Rachel Lee Hovnanian and Ran Hwang among others. Depicting a be-jeweled and be-gowned Shafiroff in a provocative pose lounging on a chair, the image clearly draws comparison to an international style icon of another era - Audrey Hepburn with whom Mrs. Shafiroff shares a common link in terms of combining philanthropy with a unique personal style.

 

No stranger to celebrity, Iké Udé is one of New York’s most famous social figures. As an artist, he is acclaimed for his unique talent in photographing elegance. His work is included in the collections of many institutions, including the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum and the Smithsonian Museum. As a writer, he first served as fashion editor of Flash Art International, before editing the Style Index and aRude Magazine. He is the author of Style File (Harper Collins, 2008), and of many essays. In 2009, Vanity Fair included him in its International Best Dressed List.
 

Jean Shafiroff  hands-on involvement with the multiple causes she supports is indisputable. She possesses a remarkable ability to connect different charitable groups with interested people and resources. Jean wears many hats as a board member, chairwoman, underwriter, and hostess of numerous charity events.

In 2010 and 2011 she chaired the Southampton Hospital Annual Summer Gala, which raised $1.7 million and $2 million, respectively. Jean’s board memberships include The New York Women’s Foundation, JBFCS, French Heritage Society, The Couture Council, Lighthouse International Advisory Board, and Southampton Bath & Tennis Club Charitable Fund.
 

As a board member of The Couture Council, which supports the museum at the Fashion Institute of Technology (FIT) in New York City, Jean hosted and underwrote The Couture Council’s private tour of IMPACT: 50 Years of the CFDA at the Museum at FIT and a following luncheon at Hotel Americano in February, 2012; in September 2011, she was one of many underwriters for the Daphne Guinness exhibit at The Museum. This September, Jean will serve as a vice chair of The Couture Council luncheon honoring famed fashion designer, Oscar de la Renta.

Jean has been dazzling red carpets throughout the city and Hamptons in some of her favorite designers including Oscar de la Renta, Carolina Herrera, Victor de Souza, Fabiola Arias and Nanette Lepore, and has also been profiled on the Chic Index as a fashionable New Yorker.
 

The inaugural Art Southampton presented by Art Miami, the premiere International Contemporary & Modern Art Fair and marketplace for acquiring the finest works of art available in the Hamptons, made its long - and eagerly - awaited Hamptons’ debut at the height of the social and cultural season this summer. The elegant art fair held in a massive white pavilion drew 11,750 collectors, designers, philanthropists, major art world figures and art enthusiasts. Both collectors and dealers were unanimous in their praise for the fair, rating it A+ and long overdue. So enthusiastic were the participants  that many signed on for Art Southampton 2013 when Director & Partner Nick Korniloff announced that he & his partners were making the fair an annual tradition.
