'The iconic Playboy Club London on 14 Old Park Lane is excited to welcome artist to the stars – Paul Mellia – into the fold with: KA-POW! A Hero’s Exhibition on March 14th. Paul Mellia will be in attendance with a number of familiar faces for a private view on March 14 to launch the eight week exhibition curated by Sara Wade of London based art advisory and consultancy Wade Contemporary.

The club has been playing host to a number of top artists and photographers over the last 12 months in association with Wade Contemporary to critical acclaim. Art lovers now have an exclusive chance to see and purchase the resident artists creations over the course of each exhibition.

Paul Mellia is one of the art world’s most celebrated contemporary super realism artists. He is also one of the world’s fastest selling artists in today’s contemporary art scene, renowned for his distinctive 3D interpretations of celebrated icons. Straddling the delicate line between visual art and popular culture, his work is neither illustrative nor photographic, but stands somewhere between the two.

He is most famously known for his pop art superhero characters, but Paul’s wider artistic prowess and vision has seen private commissions that often delve into the dark, mysterious side of human nature, psychology, religion, lust, greed, sexual ambiguity, death, desire and shame.'
