One off hand painted Charlotte Olympia Pop Art Dolly’s for charity!

It has been 3 year since I painted 100 pairs of limited edition Charlotte Olympia Dolly's for Art Basel in 2012!  It was a wonderful to reminisce last week when I painted a one off pair of Pop art Lichtenstein Dolly's for a Bedales charity auction. The shoes are of particular importance to me as It was my painted Dolly's that got the attention of the fashion world, where upon i decided to embrace my new fashion audience and expand my artistic canvases from not only hand painted body art, to fashion accessories. Here are some snaps of the finished product taken on the rooftop of my new studio!Charlotte Olympia Pop Art Dollys revisit 2015  logo 4Charlotte Olympia Pop Art Dollys revisit 2015 1Charlotte Olympia Pop Art Dollys revisit 2015 logo 5Charlotte Olympia Pop Art Dollys revisit 2015 logo 3   Here are some pictures from the original 100 pairs that i painted for Neiman Marcus / Charlotte Olympia, Art Basel Miami 2012.... dolly pop art elle us december dolly art shoes she finds 20121204-202440.jpg dolly hodgkin final charlotte olympia hand painted dolly by boyarde IMG_4271 1charlotte olympia hand painted dolly by boyarde 019COhandpaintedshoesbyboyarde IMG_4073 major figure in the abstract expressionist movement dolly van gogh final 1charlotte olympia hand painted dolly by boyarde dolly mondrian final harlotte olympia hand painted dolly by boyarde IMG_4298 IMG_4871 charlotte olympia hand painted dolly by boyarde dolly lichtenstein final charlotte olympia hand painted dolly by boyarde dolly lichtenstein final 2 charlotte olympia hand painted dolly by boyarde IMG_3655 charlotte olympia hand painted dolly by boyarde IMG_4282 charlotte olympia hand painted dolly by boyarde dolly picasso final1charlotte olympia hand painted dolly by boyarde IMG_2748 hand painted charlotte olympia dolly by boyarde IMG_9268cropcharlotteolympia IMG_9256 hand painting charlotte olympia dolly by boyarde Please note these shoes are not for sale, they are the lucky possession of the winning bidder.

The Dolly’s are back!! Hand painting limited edition Charlotte Olympia Dolly’s at Neiman Marcus for Miami ART BASEL

Hello all if you reading this post, it is because you are hopefully a fan of my Pop Art body painting, or fabulous Charlotte Olympia and her incredible sky scraper shoes. Either way, this post revisits a previous project, but on a far larger scale. I am a multi media artist, combining photography with painting, where my canvas is the body, creating Pop Art body works ( www.boyarde.com). I create other genres of art through photography and painting but last year, I was asked to paint a limited number of signature Charlotte Olympia Dolly shoes for Vogue Fashion Night out; we came up with a series of Dolly-meets-great-artists, such as Picasso, Mondrian and Matisse. Fast forward to 2012, Charlotte Olympia has teamed up with Neiman Marcus Miami, to commission 100 hand painted limited edition Dolly-meets-inspirational artists that will be launched and sold at the Neiman Marcus Bal Harbour Miami store for Art Basel, this December 2012, and of course i was summoned for the job!
