The artist who rose to fame in the 1960s alongside Andy Warhol, became a leader in the new art movement.
His paintings which were heavily parody-based were influenced by comic books and advertisements.
Using his famous art for reference, Bella and her makeup artist pal Sam Visser brought his creations to life.
She let the makeup do the talking, as she sported white pixelated dots and exaggerated black lines that contoured her cheeks, nose and jawline.

An average painting can run in the tens of millions, with his most expensive painting selling for a record $165M.
Images of his paintings are commonly circulated on Instagram, opening the art up to a world of consumers that may not have previously come into contact with his works.
Recently there has been a surge in fake prints circulating around the world with his estate speaking out to warn buyers of such fraudulent affairs.
