Teiji Hayama’s New Paintings Examine FAME

Teiji Hayama’s oil paintings, often depicting the celebrities of yesterday, meditate on the idea of celebrity and how it’s evolved in the digital age. In his new show at Unit London, titled “Fame,” the artist offers 17 paintings that feature the likes of Monroe, Taylor, and Bowie. The show runs from Jan. 16 through Feb. 15 at the space.

“FAME is not just about celebrity, it’s about how we interact with fame and what fame is in a contemporary setting,” the gallery says. “With the emergence of wide scale social media interaction, the prophetic Warhol adage that “in the future, everyone will be world-famous for 15 minutes” looks increasingly apt. Hayama’s work is about the exhaustion felt by us all as we carefully curate our digital personas, waiting for our brief twirl on the spotlit dancefloor of FAME.”
