Description

“Napoleon said ‘history is written by the winners’. He might also have said ‘And painted by the rich’. The result is a gross distortion of our past.”

BACKGROUND STORY

“Portrait of Heroes” is the latest collection inspired by master painted portraits that reveals how classical art was often a means for wealthy individuals to portray their ultra ego. It playfully suggests that the classical portrait artist was the photoshop and Instagram filter of their time.

Today we all have the ability to take selfies and live our lives through social media. But how much of what we share is real and how much are we all trying to heroise our lives?”
