Vinita Dasgupta. India. MARILYN. 2014. Acrylic and mixed media on canvas. Size: 24 by 24 inches.
Vinita’s story. She is bold, powerful, strong, free, independent. I choose feminist icons – Frida Kahlo, Bollywood actresses, and here - Marilyn Monroe. I am so drawn to her attitude and free spirit. I have depicted her so many times I can paint her with my eyes closed.
