The Amy Winehouse Exhibition Opens With Striking Street Art By Pegasus

Taking place in her old stomping ground of Camden, the acclaimed exhibition Amy Winehouse: A Family Portrait is finally open to the public.

The Jewish Museum tweeted a glimpse inside the exhibition, which includes murals from street artist Pegasus, inspired by her song "Love Is A Losing Game".

Capturing Amy in one of her most iconic 60s style get-ups, complete with beehive hairdo and Fred Perry, it's touching and tragic to see Amy's lyrics alongside the colourful portraits.

Speaking previously about the greatly anticipated exhibition The Jewish Museum''s director, Abigail Morris, said:

 

“Aside from being an immensely talented, iconic and inspirational singer, Amy was also a Jewish girl from North London. It is fitting that the Jewish Museum in her beloved Camden Town should be the place to tell her story.

“Following its immense success around the world, we are delighted to be bringing our Amy Winehouse exhibition back to London. Our street art trail is an exciting new way to explore Amy’s impact on her local community and we are keen to celebrate her legacy through the work of these outstanding street artists.”

 

You can book to see Pegasus' installation and find out more about Amy's London at the exhibition, which runs from March 16 – September 24.
