Richard Phillips makes a statement about celebrity and brand worship with his large-scale oil paintings.

If you’ve been craving a more upscale version of US Weekly or People Magazine but with none of the pesky articles, be sure to check out Richard Phillips‘ new series of oil paintings.  Featuring 10 of the world’s most recognizable faces—including Kristen Stewart, Robert Pattinson, Dakota Fanning, Leonardo DiCaprio, Justin Timberlake and Taylor Swift, and set against equally recognizable brand logos for major fashion labels such as Gucci, YSL, Chanel and Givenchy, the pieces are a sly wink at our current obsessions with both name-brand clothes and commodified celebrity culture.
