luis cornejo

The little girl in me that wanted to be Snow White and or Cinderella, is just as happy as the teenage me that spent countless hours reading fashion magazines… but you know what I love the most? That all of this is painted! At first pass, I thought these were fashion photographs that had been painted over with cartoonie bits, but nope, all of these images are oil and acrylic on linen. Yep, I absolutely love that El Salvador based artist Luis Cornejo basically defaced his own perfect paintings by adding Micky Mouse hands and Pokemon hats! So clever, and so well done.
