Dior in Purple (2017) - Bay Backner

Portrait inspired by model McKenna Hellam in Dior's Haute Couture fashion collection, Spring/Summer 2017. 

My work explores the Japanese idea of 'kazaru'; the very human need to 'transform through adornment', to make something extraordinary. I paint to express my joy in kazaru in all its forms, from nail art to street art, from byzantine icons to haute couture.
