I met Matti for the first time before he painted me. We talked a little bit about Aries characteristics, I got to pick my colours and a playlist and then the art started to unfold.
Being painted was really lovely. Matti and I discussed our love of the saddest songs on most albums, how the project has evolved into something bigger than he originally anticipated and various pieces of our lives. I had no idea what the finished product was going to look like, but just enjoyed the act of having someone create art on me and felt really at ease.
I love the way it turned out. I think Matti capture my personality as well as elements of my star sign.
Definitely a fun project to be a part of. I may have found various paint splotches on me for a couple days while I discovered the spots I missed...
The Human Canvas Project is hosting a gallery opening this weekend where you can see 100 portraits of those who have been painted.
