This week’s Pink Thing comes from the incredibly talented Florida-based artist Scott Scheidly, and his latest series of hyper-realist portraits, which he calls Glamour Shots. Part of Scheidly’s ongoing “Pink Series,” Glamour Shots consists of vibrantly painted satirical portraits in which the artist depicts celebrities and notorious politicians dressed in hues of pinks and purples. Named for the glamour shots photography style popularized in the 1990s, Scheidly draws inspiration from this campy genre, draping figures in pearls, satin gloves and feather boas. I saw the Glamour Shots exhibit at NYCs Spoke Art Gallery and immediately fell in love with this portrait of David Bowie as Jareth the Goblin King from the movie Labyrinth.
