Our Friend Michael

Charlie, Year 7

  • Print
  • Monoprint
  • A3 portrait

I began by making portraits of all the world leaders, inspired by a book I found in a charity shop of Platon's portrait photography. Our friend Michael put them all up in his hairdresser’s salon and everyone liked them. I then made a print of Michael with his funny glasses, jazzy shirt, blue hair and big smile; he looked just like a politician. Orange seemed to suit him.
