Headism is the début exhibition by Philip Levine featuring photography, sculpture and documentary video displaying the best of his iconic head designs.
London born Philip started using his head as a canvas for creativity back in 2006 when he began to go bald. He did not want to conform to shaving his head like everyone else so started using it as an art form to express. Philip's head designs have now become iconic around the world. As a tastemaker, he has gained recognition with sites including Trend Hunter and NotCot with such terms as 'Baldazzling'. His designs are inspiring men and women alike who might be bald.
Philip teams up with professional photographer Daniel Regan and body artist Kat Sinclair, continuously creating a wealth of designs that have ranged from his 1000-Swarovski crystal headpiece, to homages of such artists as Roy Lichtenstein and Hokusai painted on his head.

The exhibition is support by Gillette and was displayed at the NL Gallery in London during the first 2 weeks of May 2011
