Are you on Facebook? Join the group and you will have a chance to have you Facebook portrait painted by  Matt Held. He is a very talented artist from Brooklyn, NY who decided to ask Facebook for more inspiring portraits.

My goal for this project is to build a large collection of paintings (sum 200) which mirror individual self-portraits. With the development of social networking sites, I’ve developed an interest in how people take simple or complex snapshots of themselves, post them to their page as a representation of who they are and what they want people to see. It is an interesting form of control and, in a way, self-preservation. However, there is a strong likelihood that many people who don’t know you will see this photo representation and make passing judgments as to who you may or may not be, much in the same way we make passing judgments on people we see in our neighborhoods every day.

Submitting to have your portrait done won’t cost you a thing. We will send you the JPEG of it when/if it gets completed. The finished, physical piece will remain as property of the artist. That said, if you would like to purchase the physical portrait, commission a portrait, or, if you are interested in exhibiting the project, please contact Matt directly at mattheldstudios@gmail.com
