    Los Angeles-based mixed media artist Beau Dunn created her unique Glam Barbie #1 by hand applying thousands of Swarovski crystals, in a pink to white ombré, on a photograph she had taken of a vintage Barbie doll. Dunn’s creative process is a reflection on her experience of growing up in Los Angeles, surrounded by materialism and excess. Her glammed up Barbie casts a witty slant on the glitz and glamour of a world Dunn knows all too well.
