Inspired by Laurence Graff. An influential jeweler, famous for his knack of finding the largest and most spectacular diamonds, inspired this painting. Jewelry Man creates exclusive pieces of ornamentation for kings and queens, and his very select clientele.

He excels at tapping into male vanity.  He understands that behind every beautifully bejeweled woman may stand a successful man, a man of prominence, influence and wealth. He himself prefers to stay discretely behind the scenes observing the trends of high society, allowing him to create room whispering pieces of diamond extravaganza. Indeed his own vanity lies in finding and putting his name to the next to almost impossible to find stone.

The Peacock, one of Jewelry Man’s latest creations, is in this painting a reflection of male vanity and how success is what women find most attractive in a man.  It is filled with only the finest of diamonds including the very rarest of all, the red diamond, which is represented as the peacock’s nails trying to get attention from it’s creator, Jewelry Man.

The entrepreneur commutes between Hong Kong and Europe to socialize with the creme de la creme of the fashion industry, aristocrats and Paris Match society.
Both men have a permanent entourage of beautiful women trying to catch their attention. The player resists singular attachment, while the entrepreneur has eyes for the only one woman.

This painting captures the very special, intimate bond that can exist between two or more girlfriends. They live in the capitals of Asia and travel frequently to meet up in Hong Kong, Bangkok, Saigon or Singapore. They are distinctly different, yet because they spend so much time together they sub-consciously develop an alignment in their look and style. Being successful and complex girls they do differ in temperament and don’t always get along, hence the cat and dog. The nonchalant cigarette stands for independence and power.

Rumour has it – 150 x 100 x 5cm

Art painting Rumour Has It by commercial glamour artist and portraitist Fox DanielsClick on the image to enlarge

Girlfriends having after dinner drinks in one of the elegant high rise clubs in the city.  They meet frequently to touch base on the latest gossip at work, at home or in their circle of friends.  In our fast paced cities rumours come and go equally fast.  A drama at home, a scandal in a friends marriage, an intrigue at the office.  No matter how serious the rumour is it will only last as long as the next rumour takes over.  Rumours have great entertaining value.  The best ones are kept to share over drinks after dinner. The recurring theme of the golden earring is the reflection of two contradicting worlds: The introvert “Circle of eternal happiness” and extrovert material world of More is Better.

Art Painting Shoe Diet by commercial glamour artist and portraitist Fox DanielsClick on the image to enlarge

Shoe Diet came about after hearing of yet another popular diet in Hong Kong.  Successful women put endless stress on their appearance and especially their waistline.  To compensate for a drastic food regime nothing seems better than the latest pair of Giuseppe Zanotti for breakfast, Jimmy Choo’s for lunch and Christian Louboutin to dine.  Of course hair, make-up and dress are carefully selected to match.

The recurring theme of the golden earring is the reflection of two contradicting worlds: The introvert “Circle of eternal happiness” and extrovert material world of More is Better.
