Inspired by Roy Lichtenstein, Andy Warhol and all American pop artists who exhibited at the Leo Castelli Gallery in New York City in the 60s. All which became leading figures in the new art movement gave me inspiration to create a Pop Art make-up look particularly being inspired by Roy’s famous looks with the telephone with an old-fashioned comic strip edge. Every time I look at Pop Art images since I came familiar with this art I imagined how I could paint that on an actual persons face, this vision remained in my head for a long time and it’s been an amazing journey to finally re-create Roy Lichtenstein’s famous looks with make-up hair and body painting with an amazing creative team who believed in my vision and made this possible. Hope it all inspires you all.
