Death of the King

It was a shock to hear of Michael Jackson's death this morning. I thought it might be interesting today therefore, to share an old painting of mine which featured the King of Pop himself (in his Zombie/Thriller guise-that's him behind the tree), and strangely, in light of today's events, his imaginary grave. This was based on his 'Hitstory' record sleeve and the giant statue of himself that he floated down the Thames to launch the album. Whatever you might think of 'Wacko Jacko' it has to be said that he was a true one-off.

My painting is called 'Moonwalk', and was painted in 1995, oil on canvas, 210 x 180cms. The work we do when we're young...!
