Meet Zachary Crane
I have worked with Zach before. When the idea came up to do this Art for Art Project, Zach was actually one of the first people I thought about. I was a huge fan of his work since he showed me his [website] and . I was incredibly excited when he agreed to be part of the project. His creations have gotten the attention of the celebrities he draws and paints. From his bio:
‘I see the world in an unfiltered and at times unsafe way. I prefer to share my very real observations of the actions and lives of the people that come into my own. The balance is always offset of appropriate fascination and outright obsession.’
He told me he wanted a super fun shoot. He saw a shoot I did with a model in undies and just having fun. So he wanted to do the same. I told him he would do what I love to do, use paint and let him create his on canvas. So that is what we did. He created his own canvas and had fun in his tighty whities. Zach is the first drawer and painter of my project, so I am beyond elated to present to you what we did.
He is an artist and has opinions. Which is great. Because he is incredibly talented.
Here is what Zachary drew for me. The story behind it is pretty awesome, but complicated. The main subject of the piece is Mathu Andersen, famed make-up artist. From the story Zach told me, it reminded me of someone trying to mimic someone else’s style, but failing to produce the same quality. Here is someone latched on to Mathu, attempting to take his talent, but in the end cannot mimic him.
