The icons of an age are often immortalized by artists. Artist Gerald Laing may not be as famous as Andy Warhol for his Pop Art portraits but he has been doing them since the early 1960s when he created Pop Art pictures of Brigitte Bardot. His latest work includes picture of Amy Winehouse, Kate Moss and Victoria Beckham
. Moss has been sort of all-purpose muse for a variety of artists ranging from Banksy
to Lucien Freud
The works represent a turn in Laing's recent work, a sharp commentary on the war in Iraq that featured images of torture from Abu Ghraib prison. The sweetest of the pictures is The Kiss, a picture of Amy Winehouse on a red carpet kissing her husband, Blake Fielder-Civil. You can pick up a imited edition prints of this picture for £1,000 from the Ocontemporary gallery.
