Metamorphosis by Olan

The works of artist Olan, entitled 'Metamorphosis', an exploration by the artist on the perceptions of feminine beauty, include mixed media works of such notables as Anne Hathaway, Courtney Love, Kelly Osbourne, RuPaul, Drag performer Lady Bunny, supermodels Linda Evangelista, Erin Wasson and Stephanie Seymour along with works of homeless and working women, transsexuals, female impersonators, androgynous males and mythical mermaids - (none of whom will be pointed out as such) in an effort to explore the societal perception of feminine beauty in art reflecting individuals who create that allure, some by the sheer fact they are born female and others who create the feminine iconic illusion. All of the artists works are created from his own photos of his subjects through digital art combined with hand-painting on canvas.
