As Part of my "Icons" series this is a portrait of Marilyn Monroe who to this days is still considered the world's most popular icon of sex appeal and beauty, and is remembered for her idiosyncratic sense of humor and sly wit.Monroe has been imitated over the years by a number of celebrities, including Madonna, Lady Gaga and Gwen Stefani.
Alcohol Inks on Yupo Paper, mounted on wood box canvas. 50x70x cm 3.5cm deep.
The painting is covered by a layer of epoxy resin. Resin is similar to varnish in that it gives a glossy, protective finish – only resin is MUCH thicker and can be applied all at once. When cured, the resin will look the same as 50 coats of varnish – glassy, glossy, shiny, beautiful.
Note that some reflections on the pictures is caused by the highly glossy surface.
