Maddox Gallery in Mayfair will exhibit pop-artist Michael Moebius’ Queen Elizabeth Bubblegum to mark HM Queen Elizabeth II’s 90th birthday celebrations this month.
German artist and photographer Michael Moebius has immortalized the monarch with his irreverent trademark bubble gum style. His iconic pop-art creations of Audrey Hepburn’s Holly Golightly and Marilyn Monroe have been featured in Playboy, Vogue and Vanity Fair and graced the cover of magazines around the world including The Robb Report. Michael’s hyper-realistic bubble gum portraits, celebrate the legacy of these instantly recognizable women, immortalised in his own playful style.
Maddox Gallery, who made headlines around the world earlier this month when they exhibited Illma Gore’s controversial Make America Great Again work of Donald Trump, will display the work in their window to coincide with the HM Queen’s 90th birthday on 21st April.
Maddox Gallery Curator James Nicholls comments, “We have the utmost respect and admiration for Her Majesty. The Queen is a true pop icon who has been the muse of many great artists and photographers during her incredible reign. Maddox Gallery wants to pay tribute to her on her birthday with this beautiful, playful work by Michael Moebius. Known for her humour, I am sure Her Majesty would be amused!”
