This very fun mixed media sculpture– which re-imagines Barbie‘s head and torso engulfed in a pink, donut-like soft puff, while she sports hot pink swim fins on her feet — is part of the Icons series by artist Nicolette Benard. Nicolette is a Netherlands-based visual artist and jewelry designer represented by Chiefs and Spirits Gallery — in whose booth at the Spring Affordable Art Fair we spotted this excellent work ($1250 each). Wouldn’t it be cool if Mattel decided to make a series of Art Barbies and hired Nicolette to design them based on her Icons series? I think so! See more Icons on her website, at This Link!
