Poster of the Month. January 2010 The official portrait in the spirit of Caravaggio, and the fun backstage. For the first post of the Year, let's have something joyful and extravagant. These kids who seem to be fooling around with buckets of paint are professional painters with an impressive clientele. They signed the ceilings of the Hotel Ritz, the walls of Catherine Deneuve, Stefano Pilati, Air and many others. When invited to do a group portrait, I aimed for the obvious approach: I'll paint the painters. You can check their portfolio here.

Dirty boys need a bath... can we have the photos? ;-)

Incredible photos and work! And i mean it. In a time of abundancy and redundancy it is good to see someone who works getting sensuous about it.

Can i take one for mutante?

I'm loving your Poster of the Month series ... .
and this is, indeed, the perfect
note for starting the year.

It's also a good reminder -
that I need to get messier!

As Edie Beale said: "i'm pulveralized by this latest thing!".
On vous savait peintre, cette fois-ci c'est éclatant!
