The London Palladium, 18 Great Marlborough Street, London,
The London Palladium “Wall of Fame”, commissioned by Andrew and Madeline Lloyd Webber as part of the renovations to the Grade II listed facade of the building on Great Marlborough Street. As a permanent legacy to the many artists who have graced the stage of the London Palladium, Lee was inspired by the history of the rich tapestry of performers to create the “Wall of Fame”.
Using stainless steel plates to create each portrait, cut from various size holes that have been cut by water jet to reveal the famous faces of past and present performers of the London Palladium.
Inspired by the history of the rich tapestry of performers who have graced the stage of the London Palladium, Lee wanted to embed the presence of the performers by giving each “star” a place on “The Wall of Fame.
The Wall of Fame will be an intrinsic link between icons of the past and the performances of the future including legends such as Nat King Cole, Sammy Davis Jr and Judy Garland to Bruce Forsyth, Ken Dodd and Norman Wisdom, The London Palladium has always staged extraordinary artists and performers.
