“Finding the right solution for someone as timeless as Audrey proved a tricky task. Not only was she a classically beautiful actress, she also dedicated her life to philanthropy. I wanted to show both sides of her life’s work.
It was easy to find inspiration for her portrait in Yousuf Karsh’s photograph from 1956, used with permission from the estate of Yousuf Karsh. The black and white image is graceful and understated yet immediately recognizable. Taking cues from Audrey’s movie posters and work with charities, I added a graphic splash of pink and figures of her dancing with and embracing children.”
