Vakseen

His pseudonym “Vakseen” (which he also uses as a producer and songwriter) represents being the cure in life. He believes “you can complain about the things in life, or we can be the cure and make the change!”

“Vanity Pop” is a collage-influence painting technique that celebrates women, beauty, fashion, personal identity, luxury, excess, insecurities, and vulnerability. His abstract portraits fuse elements of cubism, photorealism, fashion design and pop surrealism, resulting in a visual dialogue about the male gaze, its impact on pop culture and consumerism, and how they impact beauty standards, as well as people.
