Most Wanted Series

First produced in 2008, this series of artworks based on genuine mugshots of pop culture icons, went on to become a best selling international published print edition, owned by thousands of collectors worldwide.

The vintage snaps used to create these portraits were taken with Polaroid cameras by unknown cops or clerks, which gives the portraits a raw and authentic feel.

The inspiration for “Most Wanted” came from a series of early silkscreen portraits made by Andy Warhol: In 1964 he was commissioned to produce a large mural to decorate the facade of the New York State Pavillion at the 1964 New York World Fair. For the project, Warhol used the mugshot photographs of thirteen men wanted by the NYPD featured in a brochure called ‘Thirteen Most Wanted’.
