Banksy Superstar Kate Moss




If Warhol were alive today he would have splashed Kate Moss all over the cover of Interview Magazine not to mention immortalize her in a series of paintings and limited edition prints. In terms of pop icons, Kate Moss is definitely the two dimensional successor to Marilyn Monroe. She clearly holds the title of, ‘most recognizable face of her time’ by a long shot. A set of Banksy’s prints of Moss in the style of Warhol’s iconic Marilyn series recently sold for £96,000 in Bonham’s Urban Art auction. Other prominent artists who have painted Moss include: Lucian Freud, Gary Hume ,Takashi Murakami, Richard Prince, Chuck Close, Julian Opie, Tracey Emin, Lisa Yuskavage, Marc Quinn, Stella Vine and Alex Katz. Moss has always been a first rate scene kid, a woman of her time, hanging out with Damien Hirst,  palling around with Tracey Emin, and at one point was said to be romantically linked with Jake Chapman….Go Kate Go!
