From Marilyn Monroe to Elvis Presley, Barack Obama to Yves Saint Laurent, famous people influence us in many ways across our lives, and their depiction in art encourages discourse around what a single person’s true influence can extend to in our world. Decorate your home with modern and retro takes on the biggest icons of our age, that will add fun and personality to your space.
The world of music has produced many famous artists around the world. Music is a universal language, and amongst its ranks are men and women so talented they transcend the medium. Is there a more famous face in music than the King of Rock, Elvis Presley? Perhaps not. From his humble beginnings to superstardom, Elvis remained an enigmatic figure up until his death. He’s been captured as an icon of a time long past, one that evokes a retro style. Elvis made a path for countless pop stars to breakthrough. None in recent history have been more famous than Lady Gaga. Her unique voice, style and overall talent have garnered her deserving attention from around the world. Reggae’s most famous face is Jamaican singer and songwriter Bob Marley, who was one of the pioneers of reggae music. Marley’s unique songwriting style and distinctive voice have made him recognisable around the world.
Invite a piece of culture into your home and office space by hanging up one of these famous faces. Maybe it’s the beautiful and glamourous portrait of the 1950s actress Marilyn Monroe, who starred in The Seven Year Itch (1955) and Some Like it Hot (1959). She has grown to be an icon of timeless beauty around the world. The superstar Elvis Presley made a successful transition from music to movies early in his career. Although he never set aside his music career, he did make a remarkable impact on the big screen, in films such as Jailhouse Rock (1957) and Viva Las Vegas (1964). Within the canvas art collection, we have the famous face of the nineteenth-century French actor Odette Dulac. Odette’s likeness is captured by the Italian poster artist Leonette Cappiello.
Whether you’re a fan of music, movies, or fashion, we have a number of famous faces to brighten up your living space. Perhaps it is a man of peace who would inspire you most by always having him in your presence, and that is the Indian leader Gandhi, who led many peaceful protests. Within our collection, there is a handful of canvas art prints featuring the former President of the United States, Barak Obama. One is an interesting contrast of Obama with the civil rights leader Martin Luther King Jr., while another is a comical interpretation of Obama’s superhero image that has inspired countless millions of people around the world. There are also the gamechangers of fashion. One is a portrait of Yves Saint Laurent with a Piet Mondrian artwork, created by Ben Heine. One of the most famous moments of the Yves Saint Laurent fashion house is when Laurent took an artwork by the Abstract artist and turned it into a dress. The genius of physics, Albert Einstein, while encouraging thought and imagination in everyone, is a famous figure to aspire to.
Pop Art took inspiration from all things popular in the United States. This includes anything from consumer culture and mass media. Some of the most notable works of Pop Art are those based on celebrities. Notably, the artworks of Andy Warhol heavily feature famous faces like Marilyn Monroe, Elvis Presley, and Jackie Kennedy-Onassis. Warhol’s method was to reproduce these famous faces on silk screens, colour them in bright, bold contrasting colours, and have them repeat, over and over, like a product of the media.
