Original Artwork

This canvas immortalizes the eternal icon Marilyn Monroe through three striking portraits, with a recurring motif: Polka dot.

Polka Dot:

I chose the polka dot motif for my Marilyn Monroe painting for several reasons:

In addition to its timeless and playful aesthetic, the polka dot pattern evokes the retro elegance of the 1950s, an era when Marilyn was both a beauty and style icon.

The dots also symbolize an element of surprise and mystery, much like Marilyn's multifaceted personality.

They add a touch of fantasy and liveliness to the artwork, perfectly capturing her incomparable charm.

Surrounding these portraits, a multitude of elements tell the fascinating story of Marilyn Monroe:

  • Official Documents: Witnesses of her public and private life, such as her birth certificate or film contracts.
  • Newspaper Pages: Articles and headlines tracing key moments of her career and personal life.
  • Quotations: Famous phrases and deep reflections from Marilyn, offering insight into her mind and philosophy.
  • Clues:
    • Chanel Logos: Evoking her famous admission that she only wore a few drops of Chanel No. 5 to bed.
    • ...

Each detail of this painting is meticulously chosen to offer a deep dive into the world of Marilyn Monroe, allowing admirers to discover or rediscover the essence of this legend through visual and symbolic clues.

Take the time to explore every corner of this artwork. The scattered clues tell much more than what is visible at first glance. "Marilyn: Facets of Life" is an invitation to a visual and emotional adventure, a celebration of the star who continues to shine in our hearts and culture.
