Photo Flash: Hayden Kays's 'Those Who Suffer Love' Presented to Sadie Frost for 50th Birthday
Sadie Frost's boyfriend gave her an £8,000 art work by artist Hayden Kays for her 50th Birthday. Check out the artwork below!
The piece called 'Those Who Suffer Love' has also been bought by Harry Styles and actor Douglas Booth. Sadie's ex Jude Law is also a collector of Hayden's work having recently bought a 'This Is Not A Bomb' box sculpture.
Hayden already has a list of high-profile collectors including Chris Martin, Matt Smith, Lily James, Noel Fielding, Brad Pitt, Billie Piper and Sharleen Spiteri.
London-based Hayden Kays is one of the most provocative artists of his generation.
Kays is both classically trained but ruthlessly contemporary. His work creates hard-hitting messages that could be from any time but speak so pointedly to right now. He seamlessly celebrates and critiques the culture industry with his bold imagery and acerbic word-play.
As a painter, sculptor and printmaker, Kays is entrenched in art history, but retains an unashamed love for popular culture, using everyday references, his work relates to and subverts the canon of the Pop Artists of the 1950s and the Young British Artist movement. He was recently heralded as the man who is spearheading the evolution of the YBA movement in the UK today.
His take on society and pop culture has already caught the eye of art alumni Jake Chapman, pop royalty Harry Styles and film luminaries such as Jude Law, who are all avid collectors of his work.
Platinum-selling band The Kooks recently used his intricate Sending My Heart for the artwork on their latest album.
He also exhibited his gloriously witty take on the classic design of a Stormtrooper helmet in Art Wars at the Saatchi Gallery during Frieze London and was in good company exhibiting alongside celebrated artists including David Bailey, Damien Hirst and Yinka Shonibare, MBE.
He enjoyed a successful 2014 with his sell-out show, "This Is Not A Bomb", and was also invited to edit the Arts & Culture pages of Hunger Magazine.
Kays has already exhibited sell out shows London, Paris and Dubai and will continue the global tour of 'The Top Ten' exhibition on throughout 2015.
