Not too long ago, I pointed you to the art of Daniel Edwards. He has another celebrity sculpture that should not be overlooked – Monument to Pro-Life: The Birth of Sean Preston. You have to love Edwards’ take on celebrities! Don’t skip the bronzed poop of Suri Cruise.
Watch this video to learn more about Daniel Edwards.
There are many celebrity artists – some good, some not so good. I think David Bowie’s art could be considered good, though he has painted some very weird images. Take a look at some of his work at BOWIEART.
While I am no fan of Paris Hilton, I am a fan of Daniel Edwards. His sculpture Paris Hilton Autopsy is beautiful. The gallery press release describes the sculpture as follows:
An interactive Public Service Announcement featuring the graphic display of a tiara-wearing, autopsied Paris Hilton with removable innards is designed to warn teenagers of the hazards of underage drinking…The ‘unglamorous’ display which includes support material from Mothers Against Drunk Driving (MADD) counters “the disturbingly glamorized trend of Hollywood’s ‘girls gone wild’…
You should look at the press release to see other views of the sculpture. Edwards has done an excellent job of modeling Hilton’s face.
If you like this sculpture, you’re sure to appreciate his sculpture of Britney Spears.
