    I was surprised to see the lack of comments left beneath these uploads. I love the feminist aspect of your work! Clearly a very talented artist aswell

  • David

    The first is like a Adriana Lama & Lara Stone hybrid.
    The second is more like just Lara solo or maybe with a little Sasha Pivovarova. Like the work!

      The second one is Georgia Jagger.

        Thanks Rossina, I just checked them both out side by side,
        very similar for sure & it’s not just the gap. I have must have been mistaking them for one another for awhile. Anywho, a great painting regardless of the original inspiration. Although after flipping back and forth between all three, it does appear that GJ has fuller cheeks, not quite as sculpted as Lara in many photos, which the painting captures.

  • ALICKS RENEE

    the women are absolutely beautiful. If you painted them from memory; then I bow down to you. I love painting and photography and I combine mine both, but I don’t know if I’d ever be able to do something like that from memory. Super impressed. The femism in these are amazing too. Very realistic painting style and the colors are great too. I’m just in awe. Keep it up!

Music Video: Rapper Dumbfoundead’s Hilarious Response to Hollywood ‘Whitewashing’

dumbfoundead-safe

Hollywood whitewashing has been in the news a lot lately. One catalyst being the announcement earlier this year that Scarlett Johansson landed a lead role in the remake of Ghost in the Shell, and many wondering why it couldn’t have gone to someone of Asian descent. Korean rapper Dumbfoundead (Jonathan Park) offers up a humorous response, adding himself into a montage of blockbuster films and popular television shows, playing everyone from John Snow to Danny Tanner.

Park told to NBC News that he “wanted to flip the script on the conversation everybody was having about the whitewashing of Hollywood and ‘yellow-wash’ some of the most iconic films starring white male leads.”

This is definitely one of my favourite music videos this year! Watch Dumbfoundead’s “Safe” on Booooooom TV.
