a continuation of last weeks post...
this artist (Cesar A. Martinez) is clearly inspired by Richard Avedon's fashion photography. both of these artists show the frontal view of the figure and use a similar, bright palette to catch the viewers eye.
i really love it when people are inspired by other peoples work.
it's similar to a bee and flower relationship. a bee takes the pollen for something that is already beautiful, and without hurting or dismissing the needs of the flower, the bee creates a honey comb. and although both may rival one another in terms of what is beautiful in nature, they each have there own attributes that make them exceptional.
it's been a really chill weekend and i do love metaphors. C:
