Video: Michael Jackson image transforms onto a painting

Ritums Ivanovs has been focusing on exploring the topic of stars since his 2004 series of works Trade Mark Beauty, when for the first time he portrayed the faces of stars such as Marilyn Monroe&Pamela Anderson. The continuation of his research can be now seen in the 2010 painting series STARS. LIGHTS ON at Riga Gallery (Latvia). Michael Jackson and Amy Winehouse have been the favourites of world press and public audience, they also represent the top list of positive/negative heroes, which interests Ivanovs. The video below in video shows you the accelerated painting process of a large format painting of king of pop.
