The story of the self-portrait in the pantheon of art history is a long and illustrious one. Rembrandt, Freud, Hockney, Warhol and Perry instantly come to mind.
For the KAOS artists, painting 'the selfie' gives them a deeper understanding of their psychological makeup; and a way to express their internal lives. It provides an opportunity to explore and experiment, have fun and fantasize - creating a 'selfie' as only they can see themselves - surprising, thoughtful, and sometimes provocative.
