About the Artist
Lindsay Ekstrom is a self-taught, Dallas-based artist who crafts original portraits that reveal the unknown histories of well-known Rebels, Founders, and Icons of the past and present.
Ekstrom has affectionately dubbed her unique style "Portrait Pop" as it is reminiscent of both traditional portraiture and pop art. Ekstrom simultaneously embraces and subverts the traditions of these established art styles. While she frames and positions her subjects in a stately manner, she also brings them down to earth through their humanized portrayal via symbolically-selected contemporary fashion, tattoos, accessories, and attitudes.
"I don't just put historical figures in modern clothes for a laugh," the artist says of her work. "The fashion, the clothes they wear, even their body language are all symbols that tell their life story."
Before embarking on a new project, Ekstrom meticulously researches each of her subjects to ensure that she represents them in a way that is relevant and historically accurate. From this, her unique portraits are born.
Ekstrom is the creative force at the helm of LX Artworks, a global fine art brand that showcases and expands her work to audiences around the world.
