Kate Moss: The exhibition

Artist stages 40th birthday tribute

She’s the woman with everything so what do you give Kate Moss for her birthday? Why, her own exhibition, of course.

Journalist-turned-artist Russell Marshall is celebrating her big 4-0 with a retrospective in her honour.

Aptly titled Kate Moss: 40 – A Retrospective, it will feature 10 iconic images of the supermodel across her career, from her first shoot aged 14 to the present day, along with mini biographies.

Each shot will be displayed on 10 canvases in one of ten of Russell’s signature CMYK colourways, meaning a total of 100 different combinations.

The great news: visitors to the exhibition will be able to buy any of the stamped and signed artworks (put that at the top of our Christmas wish list).

Former newspaper art director Marshall, who spent months narrowing down the images, said: '“Celebrity” can be short-lived these days, but not so with Kate. While other celebs have come and gone... Kate has stayed. She grows bigger, brighter and more iconic each year.'

The legendary mum-of-one turns 40 on 16 January. Kate, we salute you.

Kate Moss: 40 - A Retrospective: is at Imitate Modern Gallery, London W1 (imitatemodern.com), from 17 January-15 February, 2014.
