Put Yourself in the Picture: Life Imitates Art Artist Studio
Our young producer Hanna Hughes, invites you to her pop up artist studio in the Vivacity Unit 59a (opposite McDonald’s), Queensgate on Tuesday 13th February for the chance to be snapped at a photo booth with a grand twist.
Ever wondered what it would have been like to have your portrait painted hundreds of years ago? For one day only you can experience a unique opportunity to feature in photographic re-enactments of famous Masterpieces of Art from Da Vinci to Van Gogh. The photographs captured on the day will be included at a public exhibition at the City Gallery in April.
On arrival visitors will be invited to choose from thirty different paintings from the canon of art history, spanning over four hundred years. A make-up and prop artist will then style visitors in the look of their chosen portrait, transforming visitors into a living work of ancient art.
The resulting image will be reproduced in a gold frame, in keeping with the ‘Old Master’ theme, and will be given pride of price in the exhibition. A VIP Private View invitation and the red-carpet treatment will also be offered to all who are photographed at the artist studio.
