As 2007 comes to a close, I wanted to share with you this painting Mouseketeer Britney Spears With Ears by a great new artist Annie Kevans. It's a little exclusive for you all, as I believe this is the first time this picture has been published!
Love her or hate her, Britney was literally everywhere in 2007... including the walls of my living room! I collect art by a number of female artists and was invited in July to visit Annie's studio in London. I'd fallen in love with Annie's recent series of paintings known as the 'Swans', taking inspiration from the bizarre reality TV show The Swan where women were made over thanks to plastic surgery.
But my favourite of all Kevans' paintings are portraits of child stars such as Jodie Foster, Shirley Temple, Christina Aguilera, the Olsen Twins and of course Britney in her Mickey Mouse Club ears. They're just really powerful images, somehow summing up exactly how I feel about the state Britney is in right now...
