AMY WINEHOUSE - A 5* Winner of the US Grammy Awards

February 10, 2008 is Amy Winehouse's Day!
Amy swept the board last night at the 50th Annual Grammy Awards in Los Angeles (2008). She picked up a stunning 5 awards in the six categories in which she was nominated.
The music has NO BORDERS! Art has NO BORDERS! Even though Amy didn't receive a damned USA VISA [I had a similar bitter experience too] - her music travels and brings a lot of pleasure to people and music fans all over the world!

On the pictures on the left I present you the sources of inspiration for the portrait I have done. Antonio Gaudi's masique sculptures and arhitecture, and the byzantine mosaiques. Byzantine Mosaic and its traditions taken from the Great Roman Empire Art are still a great source of inspiration for me as an artist. I am putting some good examples of Byzantine Portraits of Saints and Queens with Kings. So here I will show all the main stages of creating the portrait of Amy Winehouse, the Star of the Month!

I Iwant to share and show my work that I recently did, a Pseudo Mosaic Portrait of Amy Winehouse. Her music, her style, incredible voice and original appeal inspired me so much that I wanted to create a series of her portraits, but I will share today only with the FIRST one:

Also, as I am passioned of architecture and as I love the original style of Antonio Gaudi (25 June 185210 June 1926) - his GENIAL architecture and interior designn. Especially his mosic works left a deep trace in my creativity and imagination, which have also inspired me to do a portrait in mosaique technique.
