Drawing inspiration from women, beauty, fashion & pop culture, Vakseen's (born Otha Davis III) paintings aim to celebrate the acute imperfections and endless perfections that exist within every woman. The self-taught, Floridian has developed a distinct collage-influenced painting style (Vanity Pop) that fuses elements of surrealism, cubism, photorealism and fashion design into beautifully vibrant, abstract portraits. His paintings have been featured by major brands like Adidas, Complex, Bombay Sapphire Gin, Juxtapoz Magazine and Tupac Shakurʼs estate, in addition to being sold to collectors and art enthusiasts worldwide.
