I am very pleased to share my latest creation, Lady Gaga. She is arguably the most popular newer artist to emerge in the music scene. Her fashion sense and image has no doubt influenced and captured the consciousness of the public. I have been thinking of creating her doll for a while now and am happy to finally have it come to fruition.

The doll I used is a 17-inch resin ball jointed Venus Sybarite doll produced by Superdoll. The base doll I used is not a representation of any celebrity or character, but I thought the mold was close enough to create a Lady Gaga repaint.

Full facial repaint, completely precision hand repainted featuring three dimensional repaint/shading/highlighting on eyes, eyebrows, and lips to faithfully transform the doll into the likeness of Lady Gaga, particularly inspired by her looks from "Bad Romance" and "Telephone" music videos.

As I could not find a similar wig to the one that she wears in the "Telephone" music video, I had to hand restyle and hand dye the wig myself.

The inset photo on the bottom shows the mass produced version as originally released.

Repaint is a new form of pop art, wherein the doll's face is treated like a three dimensional canvas, with the added challenge of painting within a very small area and an even greater challenge of recreating a real person's likeness. Since dolls are basically miniature pieces, brush strokes and shading have to be very controlled and precise.

-- acrylic paint and ultra fine brushes

SHOWN: CREATING LADY GAGA CUSTOM REPAINTED DOLL

(NOTE: FOR FURTHER DETAILS ON THESE MINIATURE CELEBRITY AND TO VIEW THE IMAGE IN FULL SIZE, PLEASE CLICK ON THE PICTURE ABOVE.)

As an artist, I strive to always challenge myself and push the boundaries. My passion for hand painted miniature celebrity figures stems from my love of portraits, which has been my whole artistic arc since childhood.

The satisfaction of not only the ability to recreate a person's likeness but to recreate it in lifelike 3D miniature form (i.e. dolls and action figures) is one that I consider immeasurable.

Repaint is not your standard mainstream artistic arena, but I am extremely grateful that it has been gaining recognition for the last 10 years.

Repaint is a portrait taken to a whole other level.
