Model Sean's back becomes a living  canvas for education and hope.

Created for Breast Cancer Awareness Month and featuring the inimitable Sean Jones, this details breast cancer and how it spreads, using detailed photographs from electron microscopy as reference in order to keep as much detail and accuracy as possible. The pink cells are breast cancer cells that are in the act of replicating, the orange ones are extending in order to attempt to metastasize. Only a portion of his body is showing as the cancer consumes the host,  to pay testament to how this bodily event can take away people’s sense of wholeness and identity and in some cases of survivors, actual parts of their bodies.
The composition is meant to be read as the cells attempting to cooperate to form an attack, but the Pink Ribbon is in the middle, warding off the spread of the cancer and for the purposes of this composition, effectively preventing the cancer cells from communicating with one another.
Complimentary colour schemes adorn the edges to convey the frenetic movement of the cancer cells and how rapidly they can spread and overcome the host, adding some beauty to something that’s deadly. If anything, I hope this piece teaches people to treat cancer seriously and to treat the natural world around us with awe and respect for how quickly the equilibrium of even our bodies can be turned against us.

50% of the profits of this piece sold will be going to Sean’s preferred breast cancer charity- Pink Ribbon Foundation. Art has the capacity to help the world; this is just a small nod to what it can do.

Model- Sean Jones

Tired of there not being an official day for Face and Bodypainter’s to celebrate their art form on the calendar in the UK, Victoria Gugenheim Created one.
National Face and Bodypainter’s Day is now both a National celebration and Event, the first event recently held in Bethnal Green Working Men’s Club on 13th September; the official day to celebrate face and body art the UK over. Sister events are now being planned in Scotland for the same day, to be beamed via satellite to the London location so everyone can celebrate this national day together.

A signature bodypaint created for fine art, storytelling and experimentation. Sequins, jewels and glitter were lavishly applied to add a sense of opulence to the overall work and to bring a more regal and Thai quality to it.  Each jewel and sequin were attached by hand; The gold fingernails are influenced by Thai dancers, and designs are entirely hand painted- no airbrush or stencils were used. Camp culture embodying bold colours and glitter are signature to both of their aesthetics, and so this featured heavily, along with traditional Chinese elements to honour Suzanne’s Chinese heritage.

All Kingdome Come, one of Victoria's signature works.
