Paintings in lipstick

The pink rhino

Pink Rhino

My Nguni cattle paintings are inspired in part by the work of Andy Warhol. The other day my aunt told me she wanted a painting of a pink rhino, and I got to thinking: would the same approach work for rhinos? So I hauled out my lipsticks – black, purple, gun metal grey and pink. One of the pink lipsticks was a gift from BizCommunity’s Simone Puterman, who ordered a whole bunch of them for me from Mr Price Online; the other a Revlon shade procured by Oresti Patricios of Odd Cafe. (Oresti normally doesn’t hook women up with lipstick, but he made an exception for me.) Ideally this is the first of a series of four, each in a different and wildly inappropriate colour:

I’ll photograph the new work in better light when I get the opportunity, but in the mean time, this gives you an idea of what a pink rhino looks like. In case, you know, you were ever wondering or something.
