This painting is part of my series "Being Marilyn Monroe. Icon Portraits.", a series of self-portraits reflecting and expressing my admiration for and my identification with inspiring modern day icons such as Marilyn Monroe, Frida Kahlo, Audrey Hepburn, Maria Callas, Romy Schneider, Michael Jackson, Grace Kelly and Niki de Saint Phalle.

I feel close to Audrey Hepburn since I was a teenager. I love her movies, especially “Breakfast at Tiffanys”. She was playing a such adorable Holly Golightly, charming, enchanting, bizarre and unique. Everybodys darling. But she has been much more: Audrey Hepburn had that natural beauty which comes from the inside. Her sensitivity, her compassion, her humour and optimism, her engagement for humanity made her a star, shining brightly until today and encouraging people to love and to follow their dreams.

My icon self-portrait series is influenced by the work of surrealist female artists like Frida Kahlo and Niki de St. Phalle as well as by Italian author Luigi Pirandello's post-modernist approach on identity theory. And it is based on a series of coincidences, that brought me to explore and re-think the inherent nature of portraying providing a practical meaning to the American poet William Carlos Williams' quote: «The artist is always and forever painting only one thing: a self-portrait».
