Forever 27 Club

Michael Gillette‘s ‘Little Angels’ series portrays dead musicians when they were children. The ones I’ve chosen above are all members of the infamous ‘Forever 27 Club’, but his portraits also include 2pac, Biggie Smalls, Whitney Houston and Jeff Buckley, to name a few. Because of Gillette’s subject matter and technique, I can’t help but be reminded of Annie Kevans’ paintings. I worked on her FAS solo exhibition in 2009, which was brilliant because I really love all of her pieces and the inspiration behind that particular set.
