”Growing up in the late eighties, Michael Jackson was my favorite pop star. I was always fascinated by the way he moved, sang and performed… he was electric, a magician!
There has never been an entertainer like MJ, he achieved mastery in so many different art forms. He took his natural ability to a level rarely seen before or since in music and I wanted to capture this legendary creative ability in paint.
In my eyes Billie Jean is the definitive pop performance, it is perfection – the shimmering jacket, glove, socks and hat are iconic. My aim with this series of paintings is to depict the genius and magic of MJ at his highest peak.”
