Mika exhibits his art

Star fills London gallery with his original paintings

Pop prince Mika is staging an exhibition of his paintings in London.

The singer will be presenting drawings and sketches at the Blink Gallery in the city centre.

The gallery has been decked out in loud candy-inspired colours, as the singer requested.

“The one thing I said I wanted was to be able to eat the walls, and that’s exactly how I feel,” he told the BBC.

“When I write songs, I draw sketches to go with them,” he continued. “It’s a visual world to step into and to have fun and to play with.”

His work can be seen at the gallery until Saturday (July 14).
