Beau Dunn is the quintessential L.A. girl. A native Angeleno, Dunn is highly regarded in the fields of contemporary art, fashion, beauty and collaborating with top brands as a digital influencer and ambassador. She is best known for her buzz-worthy photography, sculptures and paintings inspired by the paradox of childhood innocence, materialism, and consumerism; her series include Glam Barbie Portraits, Size Does Matter, Hello Kitty and “Need Money For…” neon sculptures.
