“I met them all. Some were vicious and crooked. But … you saw Hollywood with their eyes — an overcrowded brothel, amerry-go-round with beds for horses.” Marilyn Monroe
Many aspiring performing artists across the world moved to Hollywood with a dream to be superstars of the silver screens but few ever walked on Hollywood red carpet without the scares of the fame and fortune. This painting “The Glamour of Hollywood” was inspired when recent victims of Hollywood sexual predators like Harvey Weinstein, Kevin Spacey, Charles Rose, and many alike, started to speak out about their ordeals.
One of the famous victims of sexual abuse in Hollywood was Marilyn Monroe. She even referred to Hollywood as “an overcrowded brothel”.
At the background of this painting looking through the window,O. Yemi painted the sunset at the back of the Hollywood landmark to depict the sunset of the careers and lives of many of victims of sexual abuse in Hollywood. The picture of Marilyn Monroe was included in this painting as one of the notable victims of sexual abuse. In the foreground on the luxurious chaise lounge is O. Yemi’s unique style of rose and stems of thorns woven to a woman. The rose symbolizes the glamour and fame of Hollywood actress and the thorns are the painful ordeals of the victims of sexual abuse.
