–It may not be directly related, but this poll makes me think about other kinds of artists who create works by using their own images in a fictional way, especially Cindy Sherman. It also makes me think about the film CINDY: THE DOLL IS MINE (2005, Bertrand Bonello) and the conflicting roles of the artist who is both the creator and a part of the created work.

These artists may include:

1.Cindy Sherman

2.Katharina Sieverding

3.Yasumasa Morimura

4.Vasan Sitthiket

5.Chanon Charnphanao

6.Nawin Rawanchaikul

Most of these artists make photographs or paintings which contain their own fictional faces. Nawin Rawanchaikul also made a sculpture of himself.
