It's not too late to buy a portrait of Emma Watson!
Even though the exhibition of charcoal and gouache portraits of the Hollywood actress by English artist Mark Demsteader closed over the weekend, folks are still buzzing about the quality of the startling work and the proceeds which were donated to CAMFED, a charity that works for girls in Africa.
Speaking to Vogue UK, Watson said that she became aware of Demsteader's work when she was a student and that the artist created her portraits from photographs.
"There is a gallery in Oxford that I used to look in after school which exhibited Mark's work," explained Watson in a statement accompanying the exhibition at Panter & Hall Gallery in South West London, which ran from June 15 to July 1.
"His paintings were always my favourite. For my 21st birthday I decided to contact Mark to buy some of his work. When he asked if he could paint a series of paintings of me, I was a bit nervous about the idea at first but obviously incredibly flattered - it was an opportunity I couldn't turn down. I am really excited that Mark said he would support CAMFED International with this exhibition, too. They are a great charity doing an amazing job educating girls in Africa. I am Mark's biggest fan and I am hugely grateful," Watson said.
Prices for the Emma portraits start at about $14,000. Check out the collection here.
