Miss Watson has affirmed her appreciation of Mark Demsteader's art a few times and asked one of his paintings as 21st birthday present. Now she has 34 paintings of herself by him!
Nothing more flattering to a woman, than having her image immortalized by a real talented artist!
The artist did a really great job illustrating Emma's classic beauty.
Mark Demsteader is one of Britain's most popular figurative painter. He won a few prizes during his career including The Lyceum Prize and The Sidney Andrews Scholarship. I am posting a few of his paintings that you can understand why Emma Watson is such a big fan of the artist.
Mark has his unique and elegant way to illustrate the feminine shapes.
The collection of Emma's paintings will be in exhibition at the London's Panter & Hall Gallery this month (June). Mr. Demsteader will offer 10% of the paintings sells to charity.
About working with the actress, he said: "The idea behind them is to make a collection to celebrate Emma's birthday. I wanted to capture a moment in time, and by making each piece a quick snapshot, I hope to capture Emma as she reaches 21, in some way I hope these works celebrate Emma in what she has achieved already, and in all the many possibilities to come.”
