Boyarde Messenger’s Pop Art Bottoms! Posted on April 16, 2012
Boyarde Messenger’s Body + Space art, from her notorious Pop Art Bottoms to captivating Night Prowls, exhibited in a two day solo show at London’s prestigious Chinawhite. Guests piled in awaiting Boyarde’s live body art installation to make their grand entrance in the form of two beautiful ‘Goddess’ girls painted like a jigsaw in a surprise tribute theme to the queens Diamond Jubilee. The girl’s arrived along side Boyarde, staged on plinths to stand as a unique one off body art piece. In the mean time whilst everybody posed for photos next to the gorgeous Goddess’, grey goose, cocktails were flowing next to juicy pink Pop Art Bottoms cup cakes.
Boyarde’s art combines hand body painting with photography, and her Goddess girls proves that she can paint and that her artwork is not a computer projection. With collectors from The Royal Palaces of Jordan, Paris, New York, London and the Caribbean, her Pop Art Bottoms have widespread acclaim, featuring in The Sunday Times Style Magazine, & The Evening Standard.
Boyarde previously exhibited at the Saatchi Gallery, creating another spectacular live installation of 4 hand painted women in her unique Pop Art style, fusing art and fashion painting them in the style of Charlotte Olympia shoes. The ladies, dubbed ‘the highlight of the auction’ by The Evening Standard.
Boyarde lives part of the year in Belize, Central America and her time spent there, inspired by its free-spiritedness & bursting sunshine, allows her to create her Body + Space art at a more leisurely pace. Once the art is created, Boyarde transforms back into London life ready to ‘take the city by storm’ (The Resident).
