Kayan Kwok is an artist based in Hong Kong who is known for her surreal works of art. Although she has previously worked with more mundane subject matters in the past, she decided to turn her talents to a more recognizable character this time around: Audrey Hepburn. Kayan Kwok puts a unique spin on the classic portrait of this iconic British actress.

Juxtaposing Hepburn's face with gorgeous landscapes, Kayan Kwok creates abstract and imaginative imagery that is nevertheless still easily discernible. Whitezine explains exactly what the artist is focusing on, "Kayan Kwok initiated an one year round project where she digs backwards in the history of Hollywood and fuses it with Chinese ink culture." The results are nothing short of magical.
