In this unique artwork, Endless has depicted ‘Britain’s wealthiest sportsperson’, Lewis Hamilton in a statement Gucci jacket. Hamilton made a recent foray into the fashion industry whilst gracing the covers of magazines such as GQ and is a self-proclaimed fashion icon. Endless is known for comparing the modern worship of branding, celebrity culture and luxury goods to that of traditional religious worship and often depicts celebrities as God’s throughout his works. The halo above Hamilton’s head is a reference to traditional religious iconography and the Endless spray can that he holds is a nod to power of branding. Endless created this piece using a combination of free hand painting with acrylics and spray paint and digital design.
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.
