Photo Diary: Michael Jackson 'On The Wall'

Sunday, 2 September 2018


Branded as the 'Exhibition of the Year' and awarded 5 stars by Timeout, London's National Portrait Gallery is currently home to Michael Jackson: On The Wall, an exhibition that explores the influence of the King of Pop on some of the leading names in contemporary art. Opening on 28th June, the exhibition is available to visit every day up until 21st October 2018.

I'm a massive fan of MJ and have been since before I can remember, and it was really awesome to see so many different takes on art incorporating his influence. There was work from David Lachapelle, Andy Warhol, Todd Gray, Catherine Opie and many more. One of my favourite pieces was the 'Dinner Jacket' by Michael Lee Bush. This design was Jackson's own, saying that he'd like an item of clothing out of cutlery because it was 'the one thing that every man, woman and child in the world knows'. 

Standard adult entry to the exhibition ranges from £15-22, but weekend tickets can be purchased from Timeout for just £10. I'd definitely recommend it to any music and art fans.
