“Somehow artists find me, or rather, we find eachother,” says Grace Jones. “And when you find people you believe in, you stick with them.” A new book published by Rizzoli explores the iconic work of American artist Richard Bernstein (aka the OG star-maker, fashion fixture and Studio 54 regular who momentalized his subjects into dazzling pop art incarnations) – from his larger-than-life cover art for Andy Warhol’s Interview magazine to paintbox bright album covers he created in the 60s and 70s. Below is a sneak peek at the hyper coloured portraits he created over to years of Grace Jones and the gang.
“Richard Bernstein Starmaker: Andy Warhol’s Cover Artist”, £42.50, published by Rizzoli, is available to buy now.
