Using celebrities as artistic inspiration is certainly nothing new -- just ask anyone who ever tacked up an Andy Warhol poster in a dorm room. Yet, there is certainly no shortage of buzz surrounding Richard Phillips' exhibit at New York City's Gagosian Gallery (running through October 20) that features images of Brazilian supermodel Adriana Lima and porn star/legit actress Sasha Grey.
But it was his depictions of love her or love-to-hate-her Lindsay Lohan that seem to have gotten the most press.
This is a little shocking, as Phillips certainly isn't the first artist to use the sometimes actress for inspiration. Here's a look at nine other artists who have used LiLo's image in their work, with or without her permission.
9. Lindsay in the Bible
Spanish-American contemporary artist Domingo Zapata may have denied rumors of any romantic trysts with Lohan, but he did publicly profess his love for her professional work. If nothing else, the two did collaborate for a photo shoot. What resulted was what Zapata entitled "Eat Me" and consisted of four Polaroids of Lohan with the words "An Apple . . . that I like . . . with a bite out of it. Adam and Eve changed mankind forever . . . started SIN . . . it was a plain simple apple hanging from a tree. Then the world changed for all of us." A prominent British collector reportedly bought the images for over $100,000.
8. Lindsay in felt
Atlanta-based artist Simone Stanley creates one-of-a-kind artwork out of felt to match any likeness. An example specimen? La Lohan's mugshot (as well as Nick Nolte's, Paris Hlton's and Mike Tyson's). Purchase these images -- or request your own creation -- via Stanley's Etsy site.
7. Lindsay in fingernails
Cain and Todd Benson
Way ahead of her time as far as the nail art craze is concerned, Lohan famously showed her own socio-political artwork on her fingernail during a 2010 probation violation hearing. It's only fitting that Spokane, Washington artists Cain and Todd Benson, who are no strangers to political commentary themselves (see their thoughts on WikiLeaks and on China versus Google) turned this image into a work of art.
