Yes, all of these gorgeous portraits are speaking directly to me… from ugh to girls supporting girls, I feel like I’m living every day in all of these Tshirts! These large-scale oil paintings are the work of Brooklyn based artist Helen Robinson. Here is part of her artist statement explaining how she arrived at this work:

“Helen’s work focuses on conceptual portraiture that explores the nature of representation and the limitless potential of the human figure as a subject. She uses non-traditional portraiture to consider modes of representation and self-expression. Her paintings are all derived from photographs and studies and are mostly documentary in style. Overall, Helen’s work expresses human connection and social interactions based on our relationship to our surroundings and one another.”
