TEMPTU at Art Basel 2013
Snow bird or not, Miami’s Art Basel is the place to be in December. Last night, Flaunt Magazine and famed conceptual artist Vanessa Beecroft took over Mana Wynwood to showcase her collaborative performance with Kanye West, titled VB72. International Makeup Artist Aileen Quintana created a choir of concrete women to play the characters in Beecroft’s Greek tragedy.
“Working along Vanessa Beecroft has been an amazing experience. I was hired to be her vehicle to transform and help her create her visuals for her performance piece. I used TEMPTU PRO S/B in White as a primer for all of the models. It helped create such a beautiful surface, so then I was able to create the texture with the clay to give it the beautiful final result,” said Quintana. The girl definitely knows a thing or two about working hard. Literally.
