Impossible Beauties by Monique van Steen

Monique van steen, a dutch painter living in barcelona, spain, who is fascinated by the exploration on the boundaries of what is established socially as female beauty. The faces she depicts are outrageously disfigured yet they seem to be of a soaring sensuality with their big eyes and dazzling colors. Inspired by her urban contemporary surroundings (barcelona), she describes her beauties (adopting deliberately the term from the fashion world) to be within the popart style for the bright and surreal colours she uses,and manga or comic for the edgy compositions.
