James Dean, a Semi-Guilty Pleasure


James Dean is one of the most iconic and arguably the most mysterious American actor to have ever crossed the public eye. After his tragic death at the age of 24 years, the life of James Dean continues to capture the world’s collective imagination. Celebrity Portrait Artist Anthony Whelihan has done his part in keeping the memory of the Hollywood legend alive. Whelihan created the “James Dean Suite” in honor of the 1950s movie star. This video shows the artwork in addition to footage of James Dean.

This second video highlights another series by Anthony Whelihan depicting the “Seven Deadly Sins.” Whether your sins are, in fact, vices or your vices are, in fact, sins are often defined by the observer. Whichever is the case, feel free to indulge in this viewing of Whelihan’s artwork.
