Lisa Thomson has added three new pieces to her popular and successful “Icon” series.

Debbie Harry. Size: 70x80cm Medium: Acrylic on Canva

With her iconic pout, shock of bleached white hair and revolving, ever-imitated outfit choices, the 70s style queen has always been (and still is) much more than Blondie’s lead singer. First emerging onto the scene as a Playboy bunny, and ending up as one of punk rock’s most fearless frontwomen, Harry defined the effortless fashion of New York City. An early pop art image of Harry by Warhol from 1980 has recently been sold for an impressive $5.9 million, an image which is internationally recognised. In more recent times, Harry won ‘Style Icon’ of The Year at the Elle Style Awards in 2017. Deep hues of purple contrasts against the bright yellow tones and black undertones in this portrait, portraying her iconic punk look.

Nina Simone. Size: 70x80cm Medium: Acrylic on Canvas

Eunice Kathleen Waymon, known professionally as Nina Simone, was an American singer, songwriter, pianist, and civil rights activist. Simone recorded more than 40 albums over the course of her five-decade career and her unique fusion of gospel and pop songs with classical music earned her the title “High Priestess of Soul” and significantly impacted the fight for equal rights in the United States. Nina Simone’s sense of fashion was bold and brazen. I chose to paint this iconic image of Simone for her fierce look. She undeniably followed her own intuition over conforming to any one trend of the moment. Her deftness in styling jewellery and prints upon prints is, in a word, fearless.

Whitney Houston. Size: 70x80cm Medium: Acrylic on Canvas

Whitney Houston was one of the best selling music artists and icons of all time. Her accomplishments in music are unparalleled, with sales of over 200 million records worldwide as well as being the first recording artist to have seven consecutive No. 1 singles on the Billboard 100. Houston has influenced many singers in pop music, and is known for her powerful, soulful vocals and vocal improvisation skills. She changed the culture of television with her music, and helped remove racist attitudes. The diva also helped mold the pop music of today with her image and her voice. Rich oranges, blues and browns were used in this portrait to reflect her soulful sound which lives on since her passing in 2012.
