On The Wall.

Michael Jackson’s impact on some of the world’s most famous artists is the subject of a new exhibition, at London’s National Portrait Gallery.

“Since Andy Warhol first used his image in 1982, Jackson has become the most depicted cultural figure in visual art by an extraordinary array of leading contemporary artists.”

(Michael Jackson 1984, by Andy Warhol c/o National Portrait Gallery.)

Michael Jackson: On The Wall features artwork from 40 artists including Andy Warhol, David La Chapelle, Isa Genzken, and Kehinde Wiley.

“His significance is widely acknowledged when it comes to music, music videos, dance, choreography and fashion, but his considerable influence on contemporary art is an untold story.”

Michael Jackson: On The Wall runs from 28th June 2018 – 21st October 2018. Head here for more info.
