Fendi, Gucci & Chanel, Encaustic & Oil On Board , 36″ x 12″, From “green movement” series. $2,800.
The green movement started in Tehran, Iran during their 2009 Elections. Protesters mostly consisting of young college students hit the streets protesting the results they felt as “fixed”. What was to be peaceful protests for more rights and freedoms turned into a deadly and tragic event. This is one of several paintings that inspired me from those protests. This piece depicts the many faces of woman that painted their faces green with scarves covering their hair and lower face. To create this piece I imagined 3 fashion forward chic Persian woman and thus the reason for the title.
