How to impersonate Elvis, Che Guevara, Andy Warhol and Sid Vicious…the art of Gavin Turk

Ever wanted to dress up like Elvis, Andy Warhol or Sid Vicious? 

Gavin Turk’s done all three. 

Turk began bursted onto the art radar by exhibiting a  blue heritage plaque in his studio at the Royal College of Art, which said “Gavin Turk worked here, 1989-1991”.

Cheeky perhaps? 

Turk’s work is full of wit and referential humour, cunningly done through paraphrasing already well-known works of art from the recent past. 

He also examines what the paraphernalia of ‘genius’ consists of – a signature; an identifiable style; a marketable identity.
