"Kirsten", Collage painting by Christophe Didillon 2013

German Artist produces unique "Warhol collage" of Hollywood beauty:

A German artist has discovered the Hollywood beauty as a motif for his art paintings. In memory of Marilyn Monroe and the famous artist Andy Warhol, Christophe Didillon manufactures (41) artistic pictures of Kirsten Dunst. The artists admires Kirsten and her engagement for people with depression.
"I think Kirsten is a very brave lady. Like Marilyn Monroe and other important artists she suffered for some time of a severe depression. Kirsten is one of very few celebrities who have had the courage to confess to this very serious disease openly, and to bring about a social dialogue. Until the recent past, depression diesease were considered as personal weakness of individual people, anything but seriously taken by society – a great grievance against the diseased people; the more so as disease is very common. Countless people are dying of this disease, most of them unseen and quietly, but sometimes there are famous people becoming its victim, such as, for example, the German soccer star Robert Enke.
I myself suffered severe depressive episodes in my own life, and a friend of mine, seemingly always cheerful, once shot himself with a hunting rifle. This came all of a sudden for me, I was absolutely blindsided. It happened without any warning or a sign, and without me anticipating it. So, I know how tricky and serious depressions are. Mostly, one doesn't recognize by just looking at people affected to that disease.

I thank Kirsten very much for advocating for a more open discussion about and inclusion of depressive people in society. This is really brave and gives all of us a voice.
And that is why I dedicate her an own picture series that perhaps recalls some people of Andy Warhol's „Marilyn Monroe“ series. However, my own style is quite different, and I don't want to measure with Andy Warhol. I have my own style, and Andy Warhol is unsurpassable, anyway! Moreover, my pictures aren't for sale. I just want to exhibit them in honor of Kirsten, and to help her sensitizing society for dealing with depressive people."

The German artist will create further works from public domain (PD) pictures with the Hollywood beauty: "Kirsten is really a special person with an almost magical charisma, and she is very pretty. I especially love pictures with her, when she has her distinctive, smart look, while her hair is soaking wet and strictly combed back. This makes her looking so cool!", so the German artist.

He dreams of making a real photo shooting with Kirsten Dunst, when she has a date at her hairdresser's. But he fears that his wish will remain probably unattainable, because he neither has the contacts nor the financial means to honour her any fee.

Didillon very wishes that other prominent people will follow the lead of Kirsten Dunst, giving people with depression a voice, helping to sensitize society for their difficult situation.

Christophe Didillon (* in 1971); the many-sided artist made his mark with his WALLEY BERLIN art project referring to the fall of the Berlin Wall. The “German, European and international artist of the present” makes among other things miniature models of the Berlin Wall, which he designs individually. He is convinced that individual freedom is the highest value of human social live. With his works, he appeals to the people, to fight always and resolved for freedom and democracy.
If he does not paint, Didillon travels through the world, appears sometimes dressed up as a Spiderman on the film festival in Cannes and collects donation money for children suffering from cancer; sometimes he takes photos of the long hair of pretty women and converts the photos artistically with his PC.„ Shampoo Art“ calls the creative newcomer, who once donated Michael Gorbatchev a painting (cf. www.walley-berlin.de/meeting-mr-gorbatchev/ )., his newest art genre, for which he is constantly in search of ladies with nice hair which allow him to work with their hair. Didillon is also fighting for the rights of abused and ill-treated children: For the abolition of the penologic periods of limitation in matters pertaining to abuse and maltreatment of children, Didillon made a pilgrimage with a big wooden cross (1.50-metre length) from the German cities Wuppertal to Cologne to the cathedral in order to win signees for the petition of Norbert Denef for the abolition of the periods of limitation (cf. www.netzwerkb.org/petition/ ).
