The star cult around artists has increased enormously in recent decades. Art magazines that function like lifestyle magazines promote this status. For his series “Look Mom, I’m Famous” Murray Gaylard edited art magazines with Tipp-Ex. He used interviews with successful artist colleagues and painted over and overwrote their answers with his own. Gaylard also used advertisements from renowned galleries, in which he inserted his name. Gaylard’s appropriations ironically address the importance of the media, which are essential for the success and recognition of artists. Murray Gaylard was born in Queenstown, South Africa in 1974. He studied at the University of Cape Town, South Africa and at the Städelschule, Frankfurt/Main, and now lives and works in Berlin.
