London-based artist and artistic director Max Siedentopf has a knack for portraying greater than meets the attention in his distinctive portraits. A collection titled Pleasure Portraits seems ahead to summer season, that includes the distinctive pastels and jewel tones of ice cream bars alongside topics whose decadent make-up mimics the hues and elaborations of their paired confection.

No stranger to trend and make-up artistry in his collaborative, artistic improvement function with the Italian model Gucci, Siedentopf forged fashions who had been ornamented with gems, baubles, and vibrant patterns. In this playful research of duality, there’s a twist of irony: regardless of the affiliation of frozen treats and the sunny colours of summertime with pleasure, Siedentopf’s topics sit inert and gaze expressionlessly on the viewer in the same format to passport photos.

Siedentopf is at present making ready a number of upcoming exhibitions, trend campaigns, and a forthcoming e-book of pictures. Follow updates on Instagram, and discover extra of his work on his website.
