Cheryl – a Postage Stamp Portrait
This picture is composed of approximately 2500 used postage stamps which are available in a huge range of colours and designs.. The stamp colours are not altered and post marks are still visible on close observation. This picture was created on quality deep edge canvas. It is not framed and should not be displayed in direct sunlight although all canvases are varnished twice and have a coat of U.V. protection.
Cheryl is an English singer and television personality. Born and raised in Newcastle upon Tyne, she rose to fame in late 2002 upon winning a place in the group Girls Aloud. While still in the group, she began a solo career and released four albums and was the first British female solo artist to have five number-one singles in the UK. Later she became a judge on the UK show of The X Factor and on The Greatest Dancer. She has become a recognised and photographed style icon.
The actual face in this portrait is depicted using the blue stamps designed by Dorothy Wilding, the first Queen Elizabeth postage stamps. They were superseded by the Machin Definitive portrait of the Queen we all know.
