Laura is a Chicago based artist of whom Nylon Magazine has said “Andy Warhol would be proud.”
Since 2015, Collins has been working with the comedians-turned-curator team behind @thnk1994 on pop culture-inspired exhibitions. Her impressionist style paintings have featured the Olsen Twins, Real Housewives, Anna Wintour, and most recently Britney Spears.
Collins has said of her work, “A lot of my paintings show well-known women in a state of discomfort. I enjoy highlighting the absurdity of celebrity culture and playing with a bit of dark humor. I hope that my audience is able to laugh while also finding empathy for the subjects featured.”
