Collagist and artist, Beata Drozd's series of works that features hip hop artists, music industry power houses, fashion demi-god, and food goddess, is an awe inspiring show of her latest works,
The Million Dollar Celebrities at Andre Zarre Gallery. She manages to collage artists images in large scale with likenesses of such artists and starts; Nigella Lawson, Andre Leon Talley, Aaliyah, Maggio Cipriani, Jay-Z, Madonna, Damon Dash and Diddy. Beata uses paper, glue and scissors. She's very talented and uses tons of magazines clippings to create her works (Beata we know (at least I do) that you use tons of magazines, we're all hoping you're recycling them properly). Beata prides herself that she can create these images without using oil, acrylic and/or watercolor. Genius huh? I think so! The Million Dollar Celebrities at Andre Zarre Gallery thru May 13th. Must see! - Madame J.
