No stranger to popular culture – his work has featured on Gossip Girl and in collaboration with Jimmy Chu – Richard Phillips unveils his latest on January 28, 2011 at London’s White Cube Gallery. The subjects are familiar (or at least they should be), Phillips has painted what he considers the 10 most recognizable celebrities. There’s Taylor Swift and Miley Cyrus, Justin Timberlake and Zac Effron. The choices may be lost on older generations, the main goal here is to connect people disenfranchised by the art world to painting.
Begs the question, is it successful?
