A classic image of Michael among his friends, peers, inspirations

Category: Art,PhotosSeven @ 11:19 pm

A while back I presented the work of Helena Kadlicova, who had completed several works commissioned by Michael before his death. But one piece remained unfinished. The concept for the work had started with Michael’s blessing back in 2006. Other things took precedence for a while, but Helena has now completed this painting.While some of those featured in the painting were still alive when she began the work, now they are all gone which makes the painting even more sentimental and more of an important part of Michael’s memory and legacy.

About the painting, Helena says:

In 2006 I have sent to MJ a concept of a painting I wanted to paint for him but because it was quite complex work I wanted to make sure he would like to have it. Later I received a reply from him to go on with the painting and finish it. Unfortunately there was always something else to do and the painting stayed unfinished. Until last year when I was asked to finish it as a commission. And here is the result. No other painting before took me so much time to paint as this one. And I’m glad I got to finally finish the artwork, the strange thing is, when I was sending the concept to Michael, most of the people in the painting were still alive…now they are all gone….

People painted in the painting from top to bottom:
Walt Disney, Charles Chaplin, Marlon Brando, James Brown, Fred Astaire, Michael Jackson, Elizabeth Taylor.

    It’s a lovely gesture on her part. I like to think about how Michael is surrounded once again by these people he loved and who loved him. It’s ashame that she was unable to finish it and present it to Michael, though.

    Cjg: She painted more paintings for him. She completed some paintings and gave them to Michael. Then she created other paintings that Michael wanted. Read her article on mjj-777, or on her page about her artwork.
