Art Macabre presented ZODIAC @ The Star by Hackney Downs on 24 July 2014.
Our two models, Peter Maverick and Georgie, posed as all 12 astrological star signs across our 2 hours sketching special. We shared characteristics and traits of each symbol, as written in the 1930 ‘Book of Fortune’. Art direction: Nikki Shaill Photos: Linsay Trerise & artists’ own. All photos rights reserved (c) 2014.

Medieval beliefs stated that the body related to different astrological signs. Such as Aries, the head, Leo the heart, so we reflected this in our poses that focussed on different corresponding body parts.
