Mr. Blackwell's Art

As you may all know, Mr. Blackwell passed away days ago. Here's a clip of the news:

Mr. Blackwell dies at the age of 86.

Blackwell is best known for his annual Worst Dressed list that names the biggest fashion disasters of the year. Born by the name of Richard Sylvan Selzer, Blackwell was renamed by Howard Hughes.

In the early 1960's, Blackwell became one of the top designers with his line that created fashions for many celebrities and political wives such as Nancy Reagan and Corretta Scott King.As a young man Blackwell played small acting roles alongside greats like Humphrey Bogart and Gene Kelly while going to school with Judy Garland and Mickey Rooney.


That photo of Mr. Blackwell struck a chord when we saw his gigantic stylized self portrait at the background. It reminded us promptly of Andy Warhol. We'll tell you about this artist in the succeeding paragraphs and where you can get your photos Andy Warhol-ed or simply customized for that mount worthy piece.

Shangri-la holds another artist nook called Galery 7.

*Gallery 7 creates customized modern portraits. Art pieces are created and finished by their creative team of graphic artists, digital artists and illustrators.

They offer several choses and styles. You just select your preferred look such as the following:

Andy Warhol - remember the classic Marilyn Monroe and James Dean multiple images redered in various colours? A classic from the psychedelic era of the '60s and '70s. Ideal for single subject autographs.

Here's my own version of Andy Warhol we did 4 years ago for a friend in the U.S. but has never reached him yet.

Maria Callas on Andy Warhol

Grafottos - the store's signature graphic artwork style. The thing for modern interiors. Makes drab photos look sharper, interesting and different.

Che Guevara - the classic photo with a graphic illustration look. What's normal and flat becomes bold and modern.

Screenprint dots - this style gives photos a 'newspaper image' look. Perfect even for ordinary photos and diverse subjects such as group shots, pets, cityscape, cars, etc. Easy to create and great to give as a present.
