Style Icons: Male »Mike Kelley

Art Legend

I was deeply sad to hear that artist Mike Kelley took his own life today. A legendary creator, his multimedia performances, installations, films, and paintings have been a huge influence on my generation.

Many people probably know him best for his work featured on Sonic Youth’s Dirty album. Within his varied career, he re-imagined discarded stuffed animals, images from high school year books, plastic knink knacks, and crystal sculptures inspired by Superman. He started out in music as a member of the underground band Destroy All Monsters.

He was 57.
