I have to disagree:
Flipping throug my Spanish ELLE mag (yes, The one with the fab fashion book included) I found some clippings of what I think is the beggining of something huge. Just take a look on this paintings and stop thiking models are.
Sasha Pivovarova is one of the most photographed faces today; I won´t point in how many campaings, fashion shows or ads she´s landed; would be kind of silly, I Just wanted to share her work, and advice you to prep for the newcomer artist.
All paintings are self-portraits.
