Katy Perry cover 01 by Life-Is-Art-88

Being in the creating process with this artwork some time already, fighting with time issues to make possible to finish that, I am really glad to advertis this work, and of course on DeviantArt too. Creating such an iconic personality like Katy Perry, demands very unique visualization for them, because mostly, artist can’t surprise anything with anything at all in these cases, so many visualization and comparings peoples can search, analyze and see, that’s why it’s very hard to choose one and only one particular inspiration source, which talks a lot of information about character itself. So, in this time, I took inspiration from Gregg Delman photo shoot in July 2013.

Greetings and enjoy this artwork :)

“I think everything in life is art. What you do. How you dress. The way you love someone, and how you talk. Your smile and your personality. What you believe in, and all your dreams. The way you drink your tea. How you decorate your home. Or party. Your grocery list. The food you make. How your writing looks. And the way you feel. Life is art.”

Helena Bonham Carter

Diana


Being relatively not so much or in fact, not at all, fan of Sci-Fi, Fantasy, comics TV and another particular movie genres on big screens, this time, 2017 movie „Wonder Woman”, is very unusual and epic example how to create something more serious, more watchable for adult audience. Deeper idea, depicting the same old story. And I think, this is a great thing.

Zack Snyder’s influence and his way of thinking how these stories would look like on screens, is remarkable work. Ability to mix story so deep, unleashing possibility for these characters to communicate with modern world’s beliefs. Technologies, with historical background, - creating very realistic and colorful stories – in new way. Remembering his works „300”, or „Man of Steel”, but in „Wonder Woman” as co-producer, we can see, how these characters are displayed – in more common way to modern society, to make out the way for possibilities to draw parallels and compare ancient problems of mankind with 21st century.

The combat, stand, idea, what we fight for, in the end, to hold option and ability to choose, between the “good” and the “evil”, “justice” or “injustice”, “slavery” or “freedom”, “hate” or “love”. To make world better in every decision we make in every aspect in our life. This is the kind of idea, I think, this movie represents. Creating this character, while listening movie’s score by Rupert Gregson – Williams, using large doses of graphite and little patience, from me, once again took some part of time to see values listed above, which were so important to ancient times, but in same time, so commercialized in modern ages, between "popcorn" and shiny "advertisements", yet so colorful and able to feel connection for what our human being was meant to be. Diana's figure is metaphor of fighting process against mankind's decisions, when, in the same time we could do much better.

These questions are playing major role in my career and professional areas everyday, in work, studies and self projects, voluntaries for the cause of society, in mentioned metaphor aspect and values which we are bring to peoples at all, that's why, I think, these questions are so important for me, not only thinking about us, but take a look to common dream.

Elizabeth Taylor
Dame Elizabeth Rosemond Taylor was a British-American actress, businesswoman, and humanitarian. She began her career as a child actress in the early 1940s, and was one of the most popular stars of classical Hollywood cinema in the 1950s. She continued her career successfully into the 1960s, and remained a well-known public figure for the rest of her life. In 1999, the “American Film Institute” named her the seventh-greatest female screen legend.

Creating first artwork of Elizabeth Taylor for publication, I took visual inspiration from movie Giant (1956) where she won the female lead role. Giant is an epic drama about a ranching dynasty, which co-starred Rock Hudson and James Dean. When Giant was released a year later, it became a box-office success, and was widely praised by critics.

Charmed

Idea of creating this following project was long time ago. In this particular piece I have included main characters from season 4 till the end of all series. In time, when WB broadcasted 1st, 2nd and 3rd season, when Prue Halliwell was main sister of all three, I have in mind to create the second one in which Shannen Doherty and her’s life’s love Andy Trudeau (for the San Francisco Police Department and the partner of Darryl Morris), played by Ted King will be included in another artwork. Because, seriously, the first one (season) is favorite, at least, for me. So, Prue will take her’s position in another work for sure. Till that, I hope You all will like this one. :)

Claire Foy - The Crown

Netflix TV Drama series The Crown accordingly from many critical reviews makes possibility not only to watch these epic drama series with pleasure, but also making good visual moments for art ideas instead as in my case. Claire Foy’s dramatic and brilliant performance makes these series really outstanding and beautiful.

The Crown has received widespread critical acclaim for its acting, directing, writing, cinematography, production values, and the relatively accurate historical accounts of HM Queen Elizabeth’s reign.

Mariah Carey

Mariah Carey is an American singer and songwriter. Referred to as the "Songbird Supreme" by the Guinness World Records, she is noted for her five-octave vocal range, vocal power, melismatic style, and signature use of the whistle register - highest register of human voice, and of course activities in philanthropy in many charitable organizations.

Artwork is inspired by promo shoots weeks before Mariah Carey’s performing live at the Madison Square Garden on October 10, 1995. Originally shown as a television special on November 29, 1995 on Fox, the video presented Carey performing a concert to celebrate and promote her fifth studio album, Daydream, and to help prepare her and her crew for her 1996 Daydream World Tour. Carey performed five songs from Daydream—"Fantasy", "One Sweet Day", "Always Be My Baby", "Open Arms", and "Forever"—in addition to six of her older hits: "Vision of Love", "Make It Happen", "I'll Be There", "Dreamlover", "Hero", and "Without You".
