    “I met them all. Some were vicious and crooked. But … you saw Hollywood with their eyes — an overcrowded brothel, a merry-go-round with beds for horses.” Marilyn Monroe

    Many aspiring performing artists across the world moved to Hollywood with a dream to be super stars of the sliver screens but few ever walked on Hollywood red carpet without the scares of the fame and fortune. This painting “The Glamour of Hollywood” was inspired when recent victims of Hollywood sexual predators like Harvey Weinstein, Kevin Spacey, Charles Rose, and many alike, started to speak out about their their ordeals.

    One of the famous victims of sexual abuse in Hollywood was Marilyn Monroe. She even referred to Hollywood as “an overcrowded brothel”.

    At the background of this painting; looking through the window, O. Yemi painted the sunset at the back of the Hollywood landmark to depict the sunset of the careers and lives of many of victims of sexual abuse in Hollywood. The picture of Marilyn Monroe was included in this painting as one of the notable victims of sexual abuse. In the foreground on the luxurious chaise lounge is O. Yemi’s unique style of rose and stems of thorns woven to a woman. The rose symbolises the glamour and fame of Hollywood actress and the thorns are the painful ordeals of the victims of sexual abuse.

    This painting brings to mind how fragile our environment is. On a recent hike in Lake Tahoe forest, saw how bark beetles have such a great effect on the forest.

    Nice color, composition and mood, with wonderful brushstrokes! Love it!

    Very believable use of color. Painterly brushstrokes and the glow of the sun through the tree keeps the viewer in the painting.

    This painting just draws the viewer in. Really like the reflections in the puddles and the depth of field.

    So good!
