Piece description from the artist
"Chic City" is the celebration of the confidently successful, fashion-forward and sophisticated, independent woman that is fully in tune with her spiritual presence and life purpose. I used red primarily to represent her strength and passion for life and to grab the viewers full attention. The triangles are used to represent her connection with society, as well as her role as a muse. This piece was created solely with acrylic paint on canvas.
While working on hit records in the music business has played a driving force in his career, it’s Vakseen’s (born Otha Davis III) passion for the arts that has served as his key to sanity in the fast paced entertainment industry. The self-taught, Floridian has developed a distinct collage- influenced painting style (Vanity Pop) that fuses elements of surrealism, cubism, photorealism and fashion onto canvas. His paintings deal with the theme of personal identity and evolve around society's idolization of beauty, as well as the enhancements women endure to obtain this level of "perfection". His paintings have been featured by major brands like Adidas, Complex, Bombay Sapphire Gin, Juxtapoz and Tupac Shakur’s estate, in addition to being sold to collectors and art enthusiasts worldwide.
