Halloween/ART FOTD: D*face "Pop Tart" Graffiti Girl

Photobucket
Time for some weird shh! Every year I like to do a look that's just "me", something that allows me to unleash the creativity and fall in love with the art of makeup again. This one embodies glamour, grit, pop art, and plain effed upness. Based off one of my favorite Artist's, London based Street Graffiti Artist known as D*face and his work of a decayed Marilyn image titled "Pop Tart".

His work which he calls "aPOPcalyptic" often features images of cultural icons with themes of celebrity, fame, & mortality as a commentary on conspicuous consumption in popular culture. His aim is for the viewer to question their relationship with the work, and to encourage the public to not just ‘see’ but to look at their surroundings. That inspiration translated to this face...
