Started this painting 2011, A-level. I neglected it until I rediscovered it during my deep clean. 2020 complete with banyangs and chain.
Following a discussion with a friend I’ve always wanted to have Nicki Minaj as a muse for some of my paintings. To start off I decided to do a portrait of her which was difficult as she has various sides to her character; however I decided to paint her in a neutral way with no crazy expressions as that’s how I see her. Through all her crazy characters she can actually come across as normal.
AND This is the final result 😀
