Friday, April 27, 2012 Artsy Fartsy: Medusa’s Hairdo
Ever wonder how the infamous Medusa got her twisted hairdo under control? Collage artist Javier Pinon portrays the mythological creature in a romantic and innocent light that makes us change the way we look at her. His series of rose-cheeked Medusas’s are old vintage, pin-up photographs combined with the perfect accessory: the important serpent detail. Sometimes they are bold and colorful while others just perfectly blend in. It almost seems the stone-eyed femme fatal is wearing the chic, fashionable turban or finally got the chance to sunbathe in the south of France next to Grace Kelly straight out of a Hitchcock movie. Either way, we are totally mesmerized by this modern spin on one of the most notorious non-mortals of all time.
