Beautiful Women

Between the 22-29th of February, I stayed in Lesbos for an Art project that somehow spinned-off Lipstick Leaders. During this week I was portraying Women refugees at a “Safe House” of the organization SAO

Not like in my past projects this time I did transform the original portraits into “nice” Pop-Art-like portraits. the idea behind this is to make the whole topic reachable and less freighting. So like in Lipstick Leaders changing the dialogue.

Why did you decide to call it Beautiful Women and not Brave Women? Resourceful Women? Do ugly women not deserve to live away from trouble? I was asked by a Journalist about naming my Art Project Refugee Women – Beautiful Women. hear are some answers.
In this Project, I changed the original portraits to POP-ART Like Portraits. In the video I explain why
I’m Talking about my Art Project and how I draw my Motivation from Fear.

Notes to the Project “Beautiful Women” Feb.2021

As you might know, due to Covid this project didn’t take off as I planed it, although I did manage to fulfill some of my goals and create many variations of the Portraits I still have a taste for more, and according to how the Year developes I hope to give it one more go.

In my Print Shop you can find three Posters out of “Beautiful Women” that might interest you and your walls.
