There is no one who epitomised Hollywood and glamour as much as Marilyn Monroe. Though it is over fifty years since she tragically died, Monroe remains an icon for many and a perpetual subject for contemporary artists, including Dan Pearce.
Influenced by the urban art scene and stencil masters such as ELK, Pearce takes a range of media to transform iconic images of some our best-known stars. Works such as ‘Everything Happens for a Reason’ and ‘Hot Lips’ take images of Monroe and transform them in Pearce’s own unique way. He uses materials including brushed aluminium, resins and spray paint to create visual and tactile feasts which immediately catch the attention.
