Alessandro Pautasso’s colorful, confetti-like portraits of movie and music icons are explosive. The bold, geometric designs are a way for the artist to “revive the colors of the past” and reinterpret the iconic faces in powerful, new ways. Pautasso’s psychedelic palette suits the moodiness and personality of each celebrity, and the vivid patterns don’t obscure the soulfulness or expressive qualities each star exudes.
