Artist's description:

This series of 10 works was inspired by retro LIFE magazines - a publication that was dedicated to famous stars of cinema, theater, and music. The pieces combine mixed media and painting. First, I create a manipulated digital image and print it on canvas, using museum quality giclée print technology. Over this background, I paint, as well as construct a collage with various clipping materials. The painting portion combines a mix of acrylics, gesso, pen, and pastel. This combination gives me a feeling of complete freedom of choice and self-expression. Majority of incorporated collage elements are authentic and vintage, including pages from 1940-1970 LIFE magazine editions, mail stamps, 45 rpm records, and so on.
I was consciously influenced by mid-century film posters.

I titled this series "LIFE with the Stars".
