Seems most people are either in the Mathu Anderson camp or the Conchita Wusrt camp. Both men in drag are bearded. I myself have always been in the Mathu camp. His style is beyond flawless, elegant, and artistic and his wiggery is to die for.
If your not familiar with him, I guarantee you know his work. He is the creative artist who makes' RuPaul come together. From Ru's fashion, make up and wigs, it's all Mathu. Mathu Andersen has had a long and accomplished career as a makeup artist. His star-studded, A-list clientele stars and other drag queens, and includes many, but first and fore most is the world’s most famous drag queen, RuPaul, with whom he collaborated on projects ranging from the music video “Supermodel” to RuPaul’s Drag Race. A self-described perfectionist, Andersen is known for his creative edge and the meticulousness of his work, which has distinguished him in a highly competitive field. But in January 2012, Andersen, feeling “a bit fed up” with the demands of “making other people’s dreams and visions happen,” took a moment to snap a selfie on his iPhone: a soulful self-portrait that showcased a blue backdrop and his Walt Whitman-worthy beard.
Nearly three years, 800 posts, and 81,000 followers later, the Australian-born artist is anything but bewildered by Instagram. If his upcoming exhibition at World of Wonder is any indicator, Andersen has elevated the selfie to an art form. His photographs, primarily self-portraits that feature hundreds of wigs and makeup styles, not only provide insight into one of the creative minds behind RuPaul's success, they showcase an artist who can break gender barriers with the stroke of an eyeliner pen, the snap of an iPhone camera, and of course, that beard. "Mathu's self-portraits take the selfie to new heights. They crash through the vanity of social media to create works that challenge our idea of beauty. And if you can look pass the beard, his make up is downright flawless!!!
