John Walter is not a minimalist. He's kind of a watercolor Andy Warhol, at least in terms of portraits. You can see his Dame Edna watercolor portrait on exhibit now at the Nunnery in London.

John Walter and Corinne Felgate combined their considerable talents to put on this current show. Their work includes painting, sculpture, photography, performance and dance. In the last image of the gallery, the artists were photographed together by Ollie Harrop.

Implications - Celebrity portraiture continues to appeal to both mainstream and underground audiences, in advertising and in art. By marketing an item with a recognizable face, customers will be drawn to the company or brand because of its association to the public figure. The manipulation of traditional photographs appeals to buyers because of its imaginative and bold nature.
