Have your alter-ego done on a stranger
No matter who her subject is, or how visible they are in the public eye, Desmeules uses her paintbrush as a “scalpel” to brilliantly disfigure and dissect the exterior image, thereby uncovering a powerful—and universal—sense of human vulnerability.
This unique kind of portrait is not intended to look exactly like the desired character, but rather to be a distorted representation of the same. Each custom portrait is sculpted and painted on a human being. Once the representation is done, no modifications are allowed. The artist keeps the copyright of the work and can exhibit and sell editions of it.
