Artist Crush: Emma Hack

My Monday crush is artist Emma Hack from down under. Inspired by model Verushka in the 60's and 70's, Emma became a visual artist and began to master the notion of camoflauge using body paint, people, animals, and photography! She soon found the perfect inspiration and medium for her work and gained  full access to the Florence Broadhurst archives of some 530 designs which birthed the Wallpaper Collection of images that span from 2005 to her recently launched collection in 2010. It was during this time that Emma began exhibiting her limited edition photographic images. Her first ever wallpaper camouflage took 19 hours straight to paint with more recent works taking anywhere from 8-15 hours, depending on the complexity of the design. You may also recognize her work from the 2012 hit song  "Somebody That I Used to Know", where she painted singers Gotye 's music video. Her work is intriguing to say the least. It is an exhausting process for artist and subject alike; however the results are nothing short of spectacular. Enjoy your day!!!!
