A couple of weeks ago I wrote about the real Crazy Rich Asians and one of them was Heart Evangelista. I have to admit I had quite the stereotype in my head of extremely privileged wealthy young women. You know, women whose main occupation is shopping and lunching and dinning with friends. Well I had my eye brows raised a bit when I learned Heart Evangelista is an artist. I was picturing a large white canvas with the preverbal black dot in the center. I was not expecting eye opening talent.
Wow talented she is, I am duly impressed and can only describe her work as stunning. A word that is throw about quite a bit but in this context it is aptly used. She is often compared to Klimt among other expressionists, but her work stands on it’s own and I can understand the much deserved buzz surrounding this gorgeous babe. She also does not wear or condone fur—not common among the uber rich it seems. And she is also not immune to tragedy losing both of her twins in a miscarriage. So sometimes money does not solve everything.
She recently started a site called Love Marie Escudero (her real name) and she will be launching a YouTube channel this month. And I for one will certainly be following along.1
