I recently had the opportunity to be part of an incredible digital event hosted by Arts of Life. Their mission is to “advance the creative arts community by providing artists with intellectual and developmental disabilities a collective space to expand their practice and strengthen their leadership.” I was contacted to produce a piece of digital media that reflected the theme of the event, “Art Heist.”
Orchid Steals the Style Spotlight
My mind immediately went to the classic cat burglar motif, although I knew I needed to elevate that idea so it wouldn’t be cliche. After some pondering it came to me. I shouldn’t just be stealing famous works of art, I should also become them. As if taking something so precious tied me to it forever. Choosing the iconically beautiful subjects wasn’t difficult at all. Mona Lisa. Girl With A Pearl Earring. Olympia. Modernizing their classic looks was a little tricky but it was a fun challenge to tackle and I think it all turned out beautifully. I am so proud of how this video came together and I hope everyone enjoys it!
