She's a hybrid fusion of Adrian Lima and a Japanese geisha. The result is a synthesis of opposite aesthetics of female beauty - natural and artificial, and eastern and western. The geisha usually decorates her face with white makeup, while the supermodel poses in tan. The ideal might be a eastern beauty that is also a natural beauty like those Gauguin imagined.
I was born in Seoul, South Korea in the 90s. My horoscope says that I am a born artist, and I appreciate beautiful things. Ever since I was young, I was an appreciator of female beauty. I vividly remember a tall, intelligent, and beautiful girl I met in first grade in Korea. Her name was Eunbi. Even after I moved to the United States in 2000 I would continue to remember her as the pinnacle of Korean beauty, who is tall, intelligent, and border-line angelic. I studied at the Art Students League of NY under Mary Beth McKenzie.
