Woah I can't believe how long it's been since I uploaded work here.. a whole year!  Needless to say I've not been exactly eating lotus in the interim... anyways.

Abbout this pic:
This painting, titled 'The Artist with a Peal Earring, Disappearing' is a modern take on the Vermeer painting 'A Girl with a Pearl Earring'. My interpretation has Frida at its centre, surrounding by pulsing snippets of some of the superstars of the art history's paintings. My thoughts when creating this were on mulling the 'kitschification' of the work of artists so famous they've become like caricatures, ending up as subjects of anything from feature film movies to coaster sets and children's booties. 

This is a digital collage + airbrush painting. Photoshop + Wacom Cintiq.

Can you guess all the famous paintings in this pic?


PS! Someone gave me a core membership and I don't even know what that is! Thank you lovely person.
