Assignment: Send In The Clowns / Dusti Cunningham

This week’s brief saw us off to the circus to focus on a series of photos taken by contemporary American photographer Dusti Cunningham of male nudes made up as clowns and / or partially dressed as clowns which he published in 2014.

Artists could also research and reference similar themes as painted by Picasso, Chagall and contemporary American artist Michael Costello

Here’s a selection of artwork and prepatory studies made by some artists taking part in the session.

Look out for another gallery of work coming soon…
