Calvin Harris has accomplished just about everything he can in his career, but he can add something else to his collection – actually somebody else’s. A portrait (see above) of the uber-successful DJ and producer will be added to the National Galleries of Scotland. The image will enter the collection and will go on display immediately in the Scottish National Portrait Gallery (SNPG) in Edinburgh.
The image was for GQ Italia in February 2015. English photographer Paul Stuart photographed him.
“Calvin Harris has made a remarkable contribution to music both in Scotland and globally over the last decade and we are absolutely delighted to have him represented in Scotland’s national collection,” says Christopher Baker, Director, European and Scottish Art and Portraiture at the National Galleries of Scotland in a statement.
“Few artists can equal the impact he has made on contemporary culture, and Paul Stuart’s portrait is a reflective, exceptional image which the many visitors to the Scottish National Portrait Gallery will now be able to enjoy.”
