Miranda Bryant, Evening Standard, December 10, 2015

An artist who has dedicated her career to depicting the stars of Hollywood’s golden age today said public “lust” for celebrities was as strong then as it is now — but technology has made them more accessible.

 

Nina Mae Fowler’s drawings and sculptures have attracted a fanbase that includes Sienna Miller and Jude Law, filmmaker John Maybury, and singer Sharleen Spiteri. Her subjects have included Clark Gable, Marlene Dietrich, Jean Harlow, Marilyn Monroe and Edie Sedgwick.

 

Today the London-based artist is launching a book, Measuring Elvis, accompanied by an exhibition at The Cob Gallery in Camden.
