Mickey Mouse at 90 Inspires 10 Emerging Artists in London Exhibition

LONDON – The legacy of a celluloid drawing created by Walt Disney in 1928 is the story of a mouse whose squeal rang around the world to become a roar.

Some surprising takes on Mickey Mouse can be seen in a free exhibit at London art gallery Black&White Building.

Ninety years may have passed since Mickey Mouse starred in “Steamboat Willie,” but this is no average nonagenarian. And while he was born in the era of glorious black-and-white, the mouse has survived the advent of television and video, multiple repackagings, facelifts and the rise of 21st-century digital technologies.

The exhibit headliners, British artist Michael Bosanko and Australia’s Jimmy C, said that creating artworks inspired by the Disney character was a real challenge.

The Mouse is much more than just a lucky doodle, Mickey became an icon in the collective imagination of multiple generations

This exhibit includes the work of budding artists seeking to follow in the steps of icons such as Andy Warhol, Diego Rivera and Keith Haring.

All the artworks share a common denominator: they are inspired by Mickey Mouse, but each also reflects the style and personality of its creator.

The exhibit is part of a global initiative celebrating Mickey’s 90th anniversary, including events across the realms of fashion, toys and even food.
