Jared Leto’s Jonathan Yeo.

“A Savage Beauty” series, 2011. Focused on the inauthenticity of plastic surgery, society’s idea of perfection and its effect on women’s bodies; Yeo was inspired to do the series following a visit to Los Angeles. Hmmm. “They’ve all become the same.”

Jonathan Yeo’s work ranges from $1700 – (estimated) $500,000.

His most famous piece:

A portrait of Malala Yousafzai; the work hung in the National Portrait Gallery for over a year until Yeo donated the piece to be auctioned by Christies in 2014 – profits from its sale, over $102,000, was given to the Malala Fund, in support of the education of underprivileged women and girls around the world.

Beautiful work, inside and out.
