Marilyn Monroe Crayons

2017

About

Oil on canvas, 2017. Signed by the artist on the lower left, front. Light maple float frame. This is an original work of art by mid-career artist Ben Steele. With his vibrant and whimsical compositions, Steele creates playful tributes to art historical figures, subjects, and movements. Utilizing various painting techniques and styles, he replicates the works of old masters, pokes fun at the censorship of cultural icons, and transforms well-known treasures into a contemporary social commentary. Steele displays great respect for talented figures who came before him. With his comical renderings and cunning appropriations, Steele expands the genres of still life and portraiture. Some of his favorite subjects include: Georges Seurat, Edward Hopper, Andy Warhol, Pablo Picasso, George Washington, Marilyn Monroe, Mona Lisa, Napoleon Bonaparte, Norman Rockwell, Vincent Van Gogh, John Singer Sargent and his famous subject Madame X.
