I have never been much of an artist, but oil painting has always been a personal favorite. Last week, Sigma asked artist Mohammed Hindash to interpret their BARE, DARE & FLARE eye shadow palettes from Sigma Beauty to create a work of art. And so he painted the most beautiful of oil paintings. Only the Bare-inspired look has been released so far, but expect to see other inspired looks as well.
I did not think too much of this art piece when I saw it initially, but after viewing the video demonstration, I was pretty impressed. It’s difficult to come across good beauty/makeup inspired art. I think this one was done very well, especially with the layers of details the artist added. It is almost as if he were making up a real face. It’s something I would be really proud to hang above my vanity. (Hey Sigma, consider making copies and releasing them to the public?)
About the artist: Mohammed Hindash is an award winning artist from Dubai. His pieces are often traditional portrait paintings based on celebrities. “I feel as though art can be misunderstood and a lot of modern art seems to detach itself from the audience. I would like to stir up a sense of wonder and familiarity when people view my work.” Mohammed’s success in reaching out to his viewers can be attributed to his fine talent and craftsmanship evident in his work. He has won the Sheikha Manal Young Artist Award for fine arts, the top 10 Artists in Dubai feature in Time Out Magazine, and the Virgin Megastores Award for creating a painting based on their 10 year anniversary in the U.A.E.
