Marilyn Monroe decided she's had enough of the "classic" look she's known for, and paid a visit to her local tattoo and piercing salon for a little refresh - what do you think?
16x16x1.5” (painted 2023)
This acrylic painting is done on cradled birch panel with raw wood edges and varnished with a semi-gloss UV protectant coating to resist fading over time.
Marilyn Goes Alternative is part of a series of pop-culture inspired acrylics in bright colours that brought as much joy to paint as they hopefully will bring to collectors who choose to hang them. I love creating that feeling of surprise, a laugh, or smile, in the viewer, by presenting a familiar subject in an unfamiliar or unexpected way.
