An artist is elevating plain jean jackets with her hand-painted celebrity portraits.
It’s always fun to rock merch from our favorite pop culture icons. But it’s even better when you can find a special way to do it. Katia Scandale is a 19-year-old mixed media artist from Canada. She specializes in realism and portrait art. Scandale has amassed a following on TikTok by sharing her custom denim jackets that feature Hollywood royalty and the skillful process that goes into creating them.
For one jacket, she created Gen Z superstar Olivia Rodrigo’s Sour album cover. To nab one, it will cost you $800, but there was a lot of care Scandale put into making it.
“It takes A LOT of work. I put in 60+ hours of painting and all of my high-quality supplies,” Scandale said in the comment section.
Another popular denim look featured Harry Styles singing into a microphone.
Scandale also paid homage to Billie Eilish covered in black tar for one jacket.
“So much talent,” a user commented.
“I’d spend all my money on this,” another said.
“This has to be the most amazing jean jacket I’ve ever seen,” a person wrote.
