Gerry Laffy / Die Laughing Art, London

As a teenager Gerry Laffy shelved the security of a lucrative job as a graphic artist at London Weekend TV to hit the big time in the UK, Europe and Japan as guitarist and co-founder of Glam Rock pioneers GIRL before going on to work on dozens of award winning videos for Queen, The Rolling Stones, Duran Duran, Billy Joel, Elton John, Rod Stewart, Culture Club, Fleetwood Mac etc. Many commercials and 11 feature films including the classic Highlander for the next 15 years whilst based in London, Sydney and Hollywood.

"Artist G is no stranger to fame, and that is reflected in his portraits of modern icons", writes Kim Janssen.

As a musician, Gerry has released 30 albums with GIRL, Ultravox, The London Cowboys, Sheer Greed, Duran Duran's John Taylor and as a highly respected solo artist.

But an overwhelming desire to return to his roots persuaded him to turn his back on LA in 2000 and to rediscover himself in London.

Press Releases

Neil Anderson - The Independent
'Being the initiator several years ago of the high street Pop Art explosion, Gerry Laffy has since moved on to fresher pastures, stunning hand jeweled artworks, utilising pearls, sequins, turquoise, gold leaf and cut stones. His work is snapped up by rock stars, film stars and media types, yes, but forget the pop art '15 minutes' I give him 15 years. There's none so flattered as those who are so imitated."

Ross Halfin - Photographer
'Love China Girl, the painting is evocative in a simplistic form, it makes me think and want to go there, to meet her find her, enjoy the colour, wonderful...plus I'll marry the Pink Girls as well.'

Nick Morris - Director
'Gerry Laffy's work lights up my cutting room and inspires me to try and think different!'

John Taylor - Duran Duran
