Artist in Residency: Sam Visser
Welcome to the second installment of Artist in Residency, our new series that brings the industry's most innovative makeup artists to Rose Inc. for a month of creativity and inspiration. Each week, you'll discover an original look—and the story behind it—created by an artist we love. Our inaugural residency highlights Sam Visser, a photographer and makeup artist based in New York. This week: a daring interpretation of an iconic '60s style.
This makeup artist and photographer has California roots, New York style, and an impressively thorough trove of fashion books and magazines from the ‘60s through the ‘90s. He’s known for his dramatic use of color and for remixing the aesthetics of decades past into something that feels utterly, consistently of-the-moment. For his Rose Inc. residency, Visser was inspired by Sharon Tate, ‘60s mod, and eye-catching color—and the bright possibilities of the decade ahead.
