INTERVIEW. Boy George presents art: “I hate it when people talk about me like I don’t exist anymore” | Celebrities0

A world star who comes to Sint-Martens-Latem, it doesn’t happen every day. The fact that the paintings of Boy George – born as George O’Dowd – are on display is the merit of K3 founder Niels William and his wife Ellen. They have been running The Boutique Gallery for several years now. The ‘Aliens & Icons’ exhibition collects about thirty colorful works, all of which are also for sale. Although you have to pay a few thousand euros for that. “I use mixed techniques, such as pearls and glitter on acrylic paint,” said Boy George, who came to present his art live yesterday. “In the works you see the icons that I admire, such as Prince and David Bowie. The so-called ‘aliens’ are sometimes self-portraits. I mainly find inspiration in people who are not perfect. I only like complex icons, such as John Lennon and my parents. (laughs)”
