Having painted many faces over the course of her career, Boo Deity fell in love with Marilyn Monroe the moment she first sketched the classic smile and sensual eye of Norma Jean.  Her beauty and sublime feminine force changed the way business women in Hollywood exerted their careers forward as equals.

The original background is spray painted and splattered teal over the paper cut-outs of cows and seashells. Beauty and its opposite seem often to be intertwined, just as in this masterpiece. After many months of studying the face of Monroe, and over 200 sketches, Boo Deity painted the face in an impromptu style. Gathering inspiration of pop-art painting, she used large, colorful brushstrokes and matte-finish paint.

Is she Marilyn Monroe? Or just a normal girl, trying to let the crazy out? You be the judge.
