Art and Celebrities 

Many celebrities appreciate art and as an artist you may desire to use them as your muse. Some benefits are that they are well known and they have a large following therefore people can easily recognize the art and you can gain some exposure. 

I happened to meet @mannymua in New York at Sephora on 34th street doing a Yves Saint Laurent promo for their beauty line. 

As an artist you have to decide whether you will give the art away or keep it. He asked for it so I gave it to him. The choice is yours. It took me about 30minutes to complete the painting.

Other celebrities I have painted were Jessica White , a supermodel, in which she retweeted. If you can’t meet any celebrities you can use social media to reach out to them.
