Painting: Oil on Canvas.
Why Marilyn? Because she is a legend. Celebrated and scorned for her beauty and sexuality. A product of her environment, a victim of the very ones responsible for her rise. Those who made her, ended her. Fragile, powerful, weak, profound. Marilyn left permanent marks on people’s hearts.
Marilyn is the symbol of glitz, glamour, beauty, and celebrity in the West. She’s iconic, universal, and resonates with each and everyone of us. Artists have captured her in every form. She is mesmerizing, captivating, and simply put, haunting.
I painted Marilyn as a Mughal queen, to capture and blend a beauty icon from the West with Eastern influence. The concept and notion of beauty from both arenas, blended together to create this image.
