Sir Elton John is an unrivalled photography collector. His notorious and flamboyant character is reflected in his choice of modern photography he collects. Lurking behind this exuberant showman is a man deeply engaged with photography and its ability to shed light on the human condition. “They are like reading a book” he explains “your imagination comes alive and you imagine what was going on when the photograph was taken.”
“I love surrounding myself with these beautiful images,” John says “It’s my favourite art form in the whole world.” Elton has also been the subject & friend of iconic photographer Terry O'Neill, collaborating on some of his best portraits that he moulds into his interiors.
Justin Bieber, Christina Aguilera, Chris Martin and Brad Pitt & Angelina Jolie
There’s something that all these celebs have in common: their appreciation for the enigmatic Banksy’s art. Banksy is a classic Hollywood love story. It is reported that Justin Bieber got a tattoo of a well-known Banksy stencil of a little girl holding a red balloon. Christina Aguilera, the pop diva, is an avid street art collector and owns around 10 Banksys. Chris Martin bought his then wife, Gwyneth Paltrow, a $650,000 Banksy Painting at Sean Penn's annual Help Haiti Home Gala. Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie’s chateau in Southern France has transformed into a sort of private gallery over the years. Dom Pattinson, a British urban artist and a good friend of Brad Pitt elbowed Banksy’s style into the palace’s interiors.
Mary-Kate Olsen, Ellen DeGeneres and Marc JacobsChild star turned fashion icon, Mary-Kate Olsen is a huge fan and owner of works by Andy Warhol. The Warhol bug doesn’t spare many and even Ellen DeGeneres and Marc Jacobs have been bitten, time and again. DeGeneres and her partner, actress Portia de Rossi’s most expensive and prized possession is Andy Warhol’s Puma Invader (Positive), 1986, hung on the wall of their dining room. Rightly conferred the title, 'The King of Pop Art', Andy Warhol's iconic soup cans, Marilyn Monroes and Mick Jagger are the muse of many in glitz land. Warhol's own image is as recognisable and as famous as his works. His oeuvre shows a deep understanding of branding be it images of household products or celebrities.
He may not be from Hollywood, but his wife is. Prince Harry is a known art lover. In 2017, Prince Harry purchased a black and white Van Donna piece called Everybody Needs Somebody to Love. It was his token of love for his then-girlfriend, Meghan Markle. The acrylic spray paint piece is elegant in its simplicity and a lovely piece to hang over one’s bed or in a tranquil, reflective spot.
Demi Lovato, Adam Levine and Bruno Mars
Iconic celebrity photoshoots are not just an old Hollywood actors thing. New Hollywood has also successfully caught on the trend thanks to Tony Kelly.

His work featuring the Star Wars’ Stormtroopers, the Love Series was the talk of Instagram.
