Photo Manipulation: Vakseen is a photo collage artist from Florida. He uses a new style of painting known as the vanity pop, where pictures are arranged in form a collage. His photo collage is a mixture of cubism, photorealism, fashion design and pop surrealism which is hand painted onto a canvas. His photo manipulation works are full of vibrant and eye popping styles, which makes his art popular amongst his fans. According to Vakseen," My creations pulsate with feminine energy. Women are God’s greatest work of art and I believe life as we know it, evolves around them. Although I couldn’t fathom being a woman in this patriarchal world we live in, I open my creative process to the allure inherent to women. I aim for my art to celebrate the acute imperfections and endless perfections that exist within every woman.
Vanity Pop is a celebration of women, beauty, fashion, duality, insecurities and self preservation. With that foundation, My abstract portraits are a visual dialogue about our society’s idolization of beauty, the cosmetic enhancements endured to meet the status quo and the impact this has on popular culture. Although my work looks like collage, it’s in fact, meticulously hand painted to blur the boundaries between perception and reality". Currently based in Los Angeles, his paintings have been featured by major brands like Adidas, Complex, Vibe, Bombay Sapphire Gin, Juxtapoz Magazine and Tupac Shakur’s estate, to name a few.
