In the 50s and 60s, Marilyn Monroe was pretty much the most desirable woman on the planet. The model, movie star, and singer have since become a real icon.
For this new series, I’ve taken two strong elements of the earlier series. From 2015 until 2017 my artworks primarily had colorful background layers but the top layers were black, grey, and white. From 2018 until 2020 I opted for softer pastel backgrounds and more expressive and realistically colored portraits. For this series, I’ve combined colorful backgrounds with realistically colored portraits. The best of both worlds.
