This artwork depicts her majesties’ crown, re-worked by Endless, which comments on worship and power within the world today. The Louis Vuitton embellished crown is adorned with barbed wire, a material which is commonly used to protect and defend – commenting on the fragility of the royal family and the future of the monarchy. This could also reference a crown of thorns, believed to be worn by Jesus Christ, a nod to Endless’ ideas surrounding the contrasted shift in worship within modern times. Endless has created this piece using a combination of hand-painting with acrylics and hand-cut stencils with spray paint.
Endless, an Artist we have loved and worked with since we first entered the Art market, is a London-based contemporary street artist, whose artworks tell a visual story and observation of the world he sees around him. Starting out using the walls of our nation’s capital as his canvas, a bold street-art aesthetic is still prevalent throughout his works – infused with a mix of contemporary techniques. His work often comments on society’s reaction to the media, the influence of the advertising industry and the shift in modern priorities from religious worship, to the ‘new era’ religion, where the shops are our chapels, the magazines our bibles and the fashion icons are our gods. His career exploded in 2016 when he was asked to work with the legendary Gilbert and George and was followed by historic collaborations with brands such as Karl Lagerfeld, Fiorucci (FI-O-RU-CHY) and Liberty London.
Endless’ legacy will always boast that he was the first street artist to have his work feature in the world-renowned Uffizi Gallery one of the many reasons why his work is collected by some of the most wealthy and famous individuals of our generation.
