Well this is excellent: The SL artist Aemeth Lysette, who creates vivid real life portraits of avatars, has now won a real life art fellowship from drink giant Red Bull:
I’ve been given a couple of months to create a new body of work. At the end of the fellowship, I’ll reveal all of the pieces at an opening in Detroit, Michigan. The internet has influenced me a lot as an artist, so I decided to focus on the net and women in general for this collection... Here’s a picture of me [above] painting Airedine, of the now-defunct store Adore & Abhor... I picked out a couple of avatars (and their real-life counterparts) to work into the exhibit, as well. Not everyone will fit in this round, but I’m going to be painting in this style for a while.
So if you're anywhere near Detroit, keep your eye on the show launch announcement -- Facebook page here.
Really great to see such a talented artist bringing her metaverse-inspired art to a wider audience, especially in Detroit's ramshackle-but-rising hipster art scene. Go to her blog post to offer congrats!
