You may be familiar with Cotton’s previous work; his painting of Katy Perry, which features the young singer reclining amid candy clouds, was used as the cover art for her album Teenage Dream. (Fun fact: Cotton’s long-time friend and Three Custom Color Specialists Co-Founder Scott Catto assisted making mounds of cotton candy that adorned the set Cotton created for this shoot!)
In this exhibition, Cotton presents paintings in which he incorporates the figure into his landscapes of sweets, rich chocolate, and ambrosial clouds and several of the painting featured in this exhibition featured the lovely Katy Perry.
Celebrity sightings at the gallery also included: James Spader, Molly Shannon, and Fran Drescher.
Rising-star designer, Miles Ehan collaborated with Will Cotton to create many of the “Cupcake Couture” dresses featured in the paintings on exhibition, including a dress composed of cupcake wrappers and a skirt made of cotton candy with a rock candy boddice.
