Boo Ritson is a multitalented artist and photographer from England. Inspired by American pop culture, Ritson recreates common stereotypes using thick emulsion paint to cover her models and objects and taking pictures of them while the paint is still wet. Her characters are quite familiar: the cop, the hooker, the beauty pageant, the cowboy, the air hostess; so common and yet so extravagant, after her intervention on her living mannequins. Except showing her work in great exhibitions worldwide, she has collaborated with various artists like indie-rock band The Maccabees, with super-brand Jil Sander for its F/W 2011collection shown in Garage magazine and various art collectors.

Boo Ritson is showing her current work titled D is for Donut at the Southampton City Art Gallery by January the 2nd, 2012.
