Cara Delevingne is the subject of Jonathan Yeo's paintings

If you're currently in Denmark and you're a fan of both art and Cara Delevingne, be sure to check out Jonathan Yeo's solo exhibition featuring portraits of the model-turned-actress. The paintings look half-finished, but trust me, they're meant to look like this. 

On the exhibit description, it says: "The range of poses, props and guises in these paintings comment on the way in which people use various means to reveal or conceal aspects of their identity. Cara's character and profession, in her ability to continually transform, enable the visual rhetoric in these works to act as metaphors for the way in which everyone is constantly constructing the way they appear and are understood by the outside world."

According to Dazed, the Paper Towns star posed for the British artist six times over the last 15 months to help create the 12 portraits, nine of which will be on display alongside some of his greatest works of the past 25 years.

The show, titled Jonathan Yeo Portraits, is at The Museum of National History at Frederiksborg Castle, and runs until June 30.
