Orlan: Beauty Builder

Art July 22, 2011

Orlan 1977

Orlan 1992

Orlan pushes the boundaries of beauty, using her face and body as a living canvas.  Beginning in 1990 she underwent multiple cosmetic procedures to mold her face into her image of beauty.  Her rebirth was featured in an exhibit “the Reincarnation of St. Orlan.” Please check out her work, it is very provocative.  In my professional opinion, every artist needs a health sense of self importance; it fuels the desire to move to the beat of their own drum.
