Twiggy Spotlight

Pop art Style? Check. A strikingly beautiful model? Check! Tennessee Loveless has a create formula to create this Pop style portrait of the iconic model, Twiggy.

About the artist:

Tennessee Loveless is a Los Angeles based contemporary pop artist whose bold use of color and pattern evokes an immediate visual impact to the viewer, but also creates a poetic irony,  considering the fact that Loveless is almost completely colorblind.  Despite many obstacles throughout his life and career, he has persevered in pursuing his career as an artist.  He is driven by his passion for painting people and iconic fictional characters in a way that strikes an emotional and nostalgic connection through the power of color and iconography.  His original and limited edition art are highly collectible! His collection for Disney Fine Art explores his interest in high color and pattern saturated concepts. His primary focus at the moment is classic characters from the era of 1928 - 1945, Disney Villains, and Alice in Wonderland. Outside of his collaboration with Disney, Tennessee paints portraits of West Coast drag, cabaret, and celebrity personalities. As a child growing up in Marietta, Georgia, Tennessee watched his peers identify and collect information based on this “invisible force” that people called color. He began to work within two worlds, one that operated within his own vision and perception and the other which he created in his attempts to relate to the rest of the world. This disconnect later ruptured a fascination with the unknown and he began to feverishly occupy his mind with the fundamental understanding of a chromatic world. 

 

What he says about this piece:

Twiggy was the first non-drag queen that I painted back out in San Francisco. One of my most popular pieces, entitled “The Geometric Ballet of Twiggy” was selected as one of the main pieces at the prestigious “La Luz De Jesus” gallery out in Los Angeles, CA. Years later, out in Las Vegas, I sought to revamp Twiggy with two new pieces displaying various different forms of geometric patterns. Twiggy is, and always will be, my favorite person to paint.
