Prince Rogers Nelson, was the great renovator of black music in his country during the 1980s. Best known for his eclectic work, he was a self-taught musician, composer, and dancer among others. He acquired great popularity thanks to his wide vocal register and his provocative and extravagant image.
Garotto, who considers himself one of his countless fans and knows very well the entire career of the prince of music, wanted to pay tribute to him with this artwork merging, as it could not be otherwise, fashion and art. Knowing Prince’s extravagant and daring image, Garotto had to choose one of the most prestigious fashion brands in the world to honor Prince’s unique style and ©Versace was the chosen brand, as it fits all these ideals of luxury and distinction.
Thus, using materials from ©Versace Home, Garotto portrays Prince in profile on a golden background with a Greek-style pattern. The singer is dressed in a ©Versace “Virtus” print suit in a chromatic range of whites, grays, and golds, and finished with a black collar with the logo of Medusa. Prince’s face is perfectly defined, as well as the mole on his cheek, his thick lips, and his curly hair. The artist’s creativity, Prince’s style, and ©Versace’s iconic design merge in this work that exudes elegance and refinement.
1966 La Paz, Bolivia
