News and pictures of Kate Moss, the famous British model and artist muse that has been painted by the likes of Lucian Freud and Banksy.

Queen of England does a Poo

The paparazzi are not really photographers, they’re not really people either, they’re more annoying mosquitoes than anything else. But people keep lapping up their voyeuristic wares and the paparazzi continue to put food on their tables. So they’re just giving us what we want and you can’t blame them for wanting to make a living. A guilty pleasure I admit to is when they capture the rich and powerful ruling elite of the world in compromising situations. Like the queen of England with her pants down, reading a magazine on the toilet, taking a crap.Continue Reading

Marc Quinn’s Gold Kate Moss and Blood Self

Neither of these stories are new, but I thought I would mention that Marc Quinn’s solid gold Kate Moss sculpture has been unveiled and the National Portrait Gallery in the UK is hoping to buy his 2006 version of “Self.”Continue Reading

Marc Quinn’s Solid Gold Kate Moss Sculpture

I know this is old news, but I have been away from the desk for a bit. The British sculptor Marc Quinn has continued to use the muse of all British artists at the moment; Kate Moss. Miss Moss is now a life-sized solid gold sculpture titled Siren.

Marc Quinn has previously placed Kate Moss in an interesting bronze yoga pose. The teaser photo of the solid gold sculpture that every media outlet seems to have gives little away, so it could be a giant head for all I know.Continue Reading

Urban Art Auction

Bonhams seems to have created a whole new genre of art auction after the success of their first “Urban Art” auction in London recently. It featured street, graffiti and urban art from artists like Banksy, Keith Haring, Antony Micallef, Adam Neate, Faile, Paul Insect, Space Invader, Swoon, D*Face and Jamie Hewlett.

Gareth Williams of Bonhams says “Urban art is art at its most accessible, available in the public arena for universal appreciation. However, by definition it is also an ephemeral art form, often disappearing as fast as it appears. By transposing their images from street wall to canvas, urban artists are now creating a permanent legacy without compromising the vitality of their art form and it is these works which are currently taking the market by storm.”Continue Reading

Kate Moss Sculpture

The UK model Kate Moss will soon be a 3 meter high bronze sculpture in a contorted yoga pose. Marc Quinn will enlarge his previous version of Kate Moss, which was done last year, and will show it at the “Beyond Limits” sale at Chatsworth House in September.Continue Reading

Kate Moss Photo Transformation

I found a fun little tool online that converts your face into all kinds of different transformations. I used a photo of Kate Moss to transform as her head is a little more appealing than mine. Some faces work better than others.

Here’s the photo of Kate Moss that I used to convert..Continue Reading

Banksy does Kate Moss

The British graffiti artist Banksy has been getting a lot of media attention in recent months by painting elephants and tampering with Paris Hilton CDs. He pokes fun at fame and uses it to his advantage, which has been good for sales of his work.Continue Reading

Lucian Freud +Kate Moss

Earlier I posted about Lucian Freud’s Kate Moss painting, and the image used (shown on the left) probably wasn’t very flattering, or maybe people just genuinely don’t like Freud. I was just under the impression that everyone loved Freud, and that there was nothing to criticize about the man’s work.
But some of the comments were a bit harsh, so I’ve gone for a browse around the web to see if I can find some images that might do the work a little more justice (and perhaps show that Lucian Freud isn’t a “hack”). Or at least show that the Internet is not the place to be an art critic.Continue Reading

Marc Quinn to do Kate Moss

The English artist Marc Quinn plans to imortalize the supermodel Kate Moss as the “Aphrodite of our age”, with five bronze sculptures. Quinn has created a bit of a reputation for doing things a little differently. He is the artist that made a cast of his head using his own blood and the 3.6 meter tall marble sculpture of disable pregnant woman (Alison Lapper) that is currently on display in London’s Trafalgar Square.Continue Reading
