Happy Birthday Madonna!
All hail the Queen!

Street artist Pegasus marks Queen of Pop Madonna's 60th birthday with mural

A new street art mural has appeared in London to celebrate Madonna’s 60 birthday on Thursday.

Elusive street artist Pegasus spent five-and-a-half hours putting the mural together, which shows three images of Madonna’s face in bright colours.

The artist told the Standard: “I am of the generation that grew up watching Madonna succeed and become one of the most influential, powerful and iconic women who paved the way for many.

“It is very import for myself to honour this woman who has defied all [the] people who swore she would never stand the test of time.”

Pegasus, whose latest work sits in Shoreditch, added that he always listens to Madonna as he works and added that his work “tends to have elements of her character”.

The Queen of Pop turns 60 later this week, with BBC Radio 2 also planning their own tribute to her illustrious career.

Over the Bank Holiday weekend, the network will countdown her 20 biggest hitters with data compiled by The Official Charts Company.

Pegasus’ piece will feature in his upcoming show, Neon Lights, which is coming to the capital on 20 October.
