Sylvia Ji

Last week I bought a magazine called Hi-Fructose. It is a magazine about contemporary art. I never really like anything "contemporary", but this volume is way cool. Particulary, the article on Sylvia Ji.

From the article:

"In Sylvia Ji's work, Death is the maiden. Her paintings all feature darkly seductive women, and her most well known images are those of her Day of the Dead series: heavy-lidded, full-lipped, calavera-faced vixens; glamorous Catrina images influenced the archetypal skeleton woman of mod of death itself, both seductive and manacing."

Check out her work. I'm in love. I wonder how I can work this into glass...

I wonder how long it takes her to get them into makeup?
