In true style, the artist added a controversial twist to the formal occasion by sending a real-life Marky Mark model to the event on his behalf. The model spent his time at the event engaging with surprised guests and getting snapped by the paparazzi.
Endless’s, Worship Calvin Classics, is a satirical take on Mark Wahlberg's provocative Calvin Klein advert from the 90’s. Originally used by Channel 4 for a national testicular cancer awareness campaign, the artwork grew to reflect on society's addiction to image and vanity, a byproduct of the ever more exploitive advertising methods of the twentieth century. The public's desire to own unaffordable designer goods created the $450bn counterfeit industry, a subject the artist ironically represents in this piece with the fake ‘Calvin Classics’ branding on the boxer shorts waistline. The artist also showcases the model wearing a military helmet as a nod to the original adverts influence in shaping societies perception of the ultimate man.
Talking of the event, Endless sad: “I’m pleased to have been able to play a part in the trusts fundraising efforts, so that they can continue raising awareness on the HIV illness and providing much needed services to patients.”
