We would like to create a series of illustrated versions of portraits of Zarely Role Models - principal dancers with the best ballet companies in the world. Currently we have more than 30 Role Models collaborating with our brand. And this number is constantly growing. Ideally, we'd love to have the portraits for all of them. For the first step we picked 3.
Zarely is about excellence and artistry. We are inspired by Optical Illusions of Victor Vasarely - and our ballet tights highlight the most flattering aspects of ballerinas' legs.
The portraits of Zarely Role Models are to be vibrant and visually distinct, conveying the values of hard-work, perseverance and artistic vigor.
Zarely is doing things differently. So we look for the innovative and artistically challenging works - not just the graphic interpretation of a photograph.
The portraits are to be united by a visual theme but need not to be identical versions of each other.
The ballerinas are to be easily identifiable so the face is the main scope.
These works will be used in digital communications mostly so the WEB resolution (72dpi) is expectable. You can propose any format (square, rectangular, round), go off margins, use any techniques and materials. The lesser side should be no smaller than 10 inches though to allow for decent quality of details.
We do allow for draft and sketches presuming more thorough work if your entry is chosen:)
The selected artist will also receive full credit in our blog and social media channels.
