Lot description
"Marilyn vs. Mona Lisa" is one of a series of prints by Alex Guofeng Cao that depict popular images of famous pop culture figures. At first glance, the image appears to be a standard portrait of an artist. Upon closer inspection, it becomes apparent that the image is actually a mosaic of hundreds of images that vary in tone to create the depth and shadows of the larger image. In this case, miniature Mona Lisa's comprise the image of Marilyn Monroe, creating a dialogue between the two iconic women.
