HUNTER AND GATTI’S LATEST WORK FROM THEIR ONGOING SERIES, “I WILL MAKE YOU A STAR”, OPENS AT RUDOLF BUDJA EDITIONS DURING ART BASEL MIAMI BEACH 2015

Hunter & Gatti’s muse, supermodel TONI GARRN, along with JON KORTAJARENA hosted the artist duo’s opening preview for their ongoing series, “I Will Make You a Star”.  

The exhibition was curated by Nicole and Rudolf Budja, and includes 19 works from Hunter  & Gatti’s overpainted celebrity portraits, including their new gold series featuring Garrn and Kortajarena, along with other iconoclastic members of today’s art, film, music and fashion society, including JENNIFER LOPEZ, PHARRELL WILLIAMS, LEWIS HAMILTON, DIANE KRUGER, MONICA BELLUCCI, ELIZABETH BANKS, ANJA RUBIK, ELIZABETH OLSEN, JAMIE DORNAN, KARMEN PEDARU AND CAROLYN  MURPHY, among others. 

 

“I Will Make You a Star” is inspired by the neo-expressionist paintings of Jean-Michel Basquiat, and explores the transience of fame and limits of popular culture, bringing together Hunter and Gatti’s sober black and white portraits with the visceral strength that transform them into something both unique and timeless.

Collectors and friends from around the globe met Cristian Hunter & Martin  Gatti for conversation about their inspirations behind the intricate works, demonstrating the artworld’s interest in the new  ¨Fashion Art¨ niche segment created by the photographers.
