Inspiration - Tamara de Lempicka
One of my inspiration is the work of the artist Tamara de Lempicka. She produced art deco fashion paintings, the faces she portrayed had a archetectural feeling. From the cubes she used to make up the images. Also she uses a rich colour pallette, of greens and reds. There is a wood like quality, of the texture of the hair. Many of her works are self portraits, she was very glamorous. Her quote on the home page of her website is, 'Among a hundred painting you could recognize mine, my goal was do not copy. Create a new style.'
