Tonight in New York, Spoke Art will be unveiling the latest paintings from Scott Scheidly’s wildly popular “pink series,” poking fun at notorious politictians, celebrities, and pop culture characters. Glamour Shots will feature 15 new satirical portraits (with ornate pink frames) that take on familiar subjects while dressing them up in hues that are historically more feminine, touching on issues of gender roles, power, and corruption.
Scheidly further explains – “the paintings are about the perception of color so by painting people in hues of pinks and purples it makes you step outside the norm and look at the subjects in a different manner. ”
