Rosenthal Drag Queen Plate Edition

 

 

8 Fabulous figures are the stars of Martin Schoellers new art edition. 

 

International award winning photographer, Martin Schoeller, well known for his extreme-close up portraits has released a collection of very limited, luxury porcelain drag queen plates. 

 

There are a total of 8 photographs, 6 of which are limited to 100 pieces each.  Making the luxury plates a collectible item and you can count your glittery glamorous lucky stars if you snap one up. 

 

 

The dramatic close-up portraits of the iconic drag queens are a work of art. 

Immediately recognisable as Schoeller’s close-up style, but with an abstract and modern flare. The portraits are skilfully collaged to become modernised abstract artwork. Schoeller has beautifully portrayed drag culture on to porcelain. 

The porcelain being that of Rosenthal, high quality in form and function and representative of the standards we know of products “made in Germany”. 

 

 

Martin Schoeller was born in Germany in 1968 and begun his photography career in Germany. In 1993 he ventured to New York  and is now a world wide renowned photographer who has captured the portraits from the most famous of faces,  to the homelessness. Famous for his highly detailed extreme close-up portraits. His work published in such publications as National Geographic, Vanity Fair, The New York Times Magazine, Rolling Stone and GQ. 

 

 

 

 

 

The rare and stunning plates flaunt the artistic  creativity flare of Schoeller as well as the drag community which has been a life long fascination for the photographer. 

 

It’s clear his passion and heart lie in his work as he will donate his share of the proceeds from the sale of the plates to the LGBT Center in West Hollywood, which provides medical care for the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender community.
