Vakseen

Vakseen is a visual artist, designer, and music producer.

Born Otha Davis III, Vakseen's passion for the arts has served as his "key to sanity" in the fast paced entertainment business.

The self-taught Floridian has developed a distinct collage-influenced painting style, Vanity Pop, that fuses elements of cubism, photorealism, fashion design and pop surrealism into vibrantly alluring, abstract portraits. While most viewers assume they’re viewing a collage or a mixed-media art piece, each creation is in fact meticulously hand painted directly on the canvas.

While most viewers assume they’re viewing a collage or a mixed-media art piece, each creation is in fact meticulously hand painted directly on the canvas. Drawing distinct inspiration from our fascination with popular culture, Vakseen's paintings are a celebration of women, beauty, duality, insecurity and self-preservation. 

Based in Los Angeles, his paintings have been featured by Adidas, Complex, Juxtapoz, Hi Fructose, Vibe, Bombay Sapphire Gin, and Tupac Shakur’s estate, amongst others. In addition to being sold to collectors and art enthusiasts, his art has been shown in countless gallery exhibitions and featured in over 100 magazines worldwide.
