Layla Lyons undertook a BA (Honours) degree in fine art at the University of East London.

The portrait is of George O’Dowd, probably best known for his pop career as ‘Boy George’. Lyons is an acquaintance of O’Dowd who was interested in her work after seeing a portrait she had painted of a mutual friend. O’Dowd was photographed at his home as the basis for the work, but kept in contact with Lyons during the creative process.
