In this film we catch up with British artist Julie Bennett to find out more about her gestural portrait paintings. Bennett's interest is in fashion and the cult of the celebrity in contemporary society. Looking at fame, glamour and beauty, Bennett translates every day faces into bold, aspirational multi-layered works of art. Watch this film to see how she elevates unknown faces into painted icons.

You will find her portfolio of works available on DegreeArt.
