“Take Your Baby” by Andrea Bogdan – 70 1/2 inches wide x 61 3/4 inches height – Acrylic, pencil, oil pastel on canvas.
This piece was finished in May 2016 and is the largest piece I’ve done up to that date. Most of it was painted live at the Moda 360 LA 2016 fashion show on April 4-5, and I had the great honor to hang it at The York on York Boulevard in Highland Park during the month of May, and then later in the Maxfield Building on Santee Street in DTLA.
Here’s a 2-minute video about the Moda 360 event which featured fashion designers, artists and film makers. There’s a cool shot of my painted helmet (1:00), and some really awesome stop action shots of me painting this canvas (1:27) right there where the designers were staged. I love fashion, so this was a great experience for me. -Andrea
