Mercedes Helnwein

Untitled (Self-portrait with Ribbon)
Mercedes Helnwein was born in Vienna Austria, first daughter to renowned painter, and art provocateur Gottfried Helnwein. Her dark detailed drawings resemble pictures of dramatic events, like shots from a film noir or the illustrated version of the characters from a vintage pulp book. She’s also a writer with influences of southern blues, turn of the century Russian literature, and sixties comic book artists. (via la main gauche)
