Lola Dupre

Lola creates surreal distorted portraits, some made of shattered fragments, exploded features, and some loopy figures I would certainly call dali-esque. I think they're great, she's creating a new perspective with each collaged caricature.

Also worth mentioning is her first solo show, Shrapnel, featuring new Exploded Portraits opening this Saturday (tomorrow!) at Phone Booth Gallery in Long Beach, Caifornia. Reception 7-10pm. Runs until November 5th.
