For a university project I was asked to produce 50 different paintings in completely different styles. I thought it would be a challenge to 50 self portraits. I had the whole summer to complete the project, but only left myself a week to do it.
I started off my researching my favourite artists hoping to generate a list of 50 styles. I decided on 25 to begin with and began painting then. I did a painting every 1-2 hours depending on the complexity of the style I was replicating. Styles varied from traditional painters such as Van Gogh, Picasso and Rembrandt to modern artists such as Chuck Close, Jenny Saville and many others. I produced a few cartoon versions of myself such as a Simpsons character, Beano character and in a Manga style.
