Where's Wally is a classic that's fun and tempting to play with. With Where's Warhol, we were lucky: the formula seemed made for him. Warhol's name begins with W, providing that essential alliteration in the title. Then there's Warhol's branded look of jeans, stripy jumper and dark glasses, which is uncannily similar to Wally's wardrobe.

I knew what I wanted to be, I admired the hustlers, the bohemians, the challenging artists, the justifiable criminals, the underground writers. Most people had pictures of Kings of Leon or the Arctic Monkeys on their wall during that time. I had Bowie. Andy Warhol. Oscar Wilde.

We now bizarrely, in our age, follow the narratives of famous strangers, feeling as though we know them in some weird way by following their trial and errors. We follow them to gain some understanding of who and where we ourselves are. Modern man in search of a soul, said Jung.

Los Angeles Redux: Photographic Memories From the Getty Center

Los Angeles is two cities: one of the rarefied film world whose players live secluded in the Hollywood hills; the other the working city, populated by panhandlers, grifters and grafters, the wide boulevards down which course the cabs, limos and fender-bent Fords in a twilight that could be early morning or the dim mauve of after sunset.

Michael Frahm

As a fascinating parallel export, Warhol's art itself can be seen as a strong foreshadowing of Chinese contemporary art; consider his 1972 Mao, which aligned itself to the legacy of his other numerous "celebrity" portraits, such as Elizabeth Taylor and Marilyn Monroe.

Slavery and Popcorn: '12 Years A Slave'

Neil Durkin

It's a film with little to seriously unsettle the viewer. Most 12 Years audiences will be expecting two-and-a-quarter hours of high-calibre spectacle on the subject of how slave-owners in USA's pre-Civil War southern states mercilessly mistreated their human "possessions". And this is precisely what they get. It's confirmational stuff.

Celebrating Iggy Pop

Tom Wilcox | Posted 23.01.2014 | UK Entertainment
Tom Wilcox

Iggy Pop is one of the most seminal figures in music. Without Iggy Pop there would be no punk, and rock/pop music would not have evolved such deviant shades. The revolutionary influence of his eclectic career is antithetic to his lack of commercial success in the first half of his career, from the 60's to 1986.

"I don't get played on the radio anymore, and quite rightly so, because it's other people's turn. At my age I can do what I want." Elton's comment illustrates one of the admirable traits of this founder figure of popular music - his benevolence. He has always been generous with his support of new bands.

'Art about art' can be sterile, or not as technically adept as the reference work. Artists (often with poor draftsmanship) can ape historic work in an effort to claim its significance for themselves.

What's in a Name? Is Brand Identity Art?

James Burke | Posted 13.08.2013 | UK Lifestyle

Graffiti always seemed to me a purer form of the concept of 'brand identity' and one that came with real artistic flair, mystery, energy and danger. What traditionally set graffiti artists and brands apart was the drive for something beyond financial gain.
