Half a Self-Portrait Face Covering, Vanessa Jackson RA
Featuring Upbeat 1 by Vanessa Jackson RA and available exclusively from the RA Shop, this face covering is an artful way to express yourself in public.
"[For this mask} I focused on the idea of the hidden mouth… the smile, ironically at a slant that cannot be seen… we ‘read’ people by their eyes but the animation of the mouth is often very telling as a facial gesture."
- Vanessa Jackson

Half a Self-Portrait Face Coverings
In collaboration with Ron Arad RA and invited Royal Academicians, we have developed five unique face coverings. Exclusive to the RA Shop, these face coverings are a fresh take on self-portraiture!
Self-portraiture has always been a balance between representing and imagining oneself but in this project the invited artists were only given half a face to respond to. The resulting creations are playful and full of personailty.
Not suitable for children. Suitable for adults only.
