Freddie Mercury was a British singer and songwriter, who achieved worldwide fame as the lead singer of the award-winning rock band, Queen. Considered today to be one of the greatest singers of all time, his powerful voice and extravagant style have made him a rock icon, and one of the most charismatic leaders of all time.
Garotto, who has always been a great admirer of the music band, wanted to pay tribute to this great artist, using only official ©Versace Home materials through the fusion of two of his passions, art, and fashion. The artist, in this mixed media artwork, depicts the vocalist singer in profile with sunglasses and a mustache. Behind him, a large golden halo with the Versace logo, frames the character almost divinizing him.
Using Versace’s highest quality materials, this piece of art has the capacity to surprise the most demanding collectors thanks to the originality of its design, and execution as well as the incredible fusion of art, music, and fashion that it represents.
