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. Reluctant to conform, Philip ditched the commonplace, day-to-day shaving routine, choosing to use his head as an art form to express himself instead.

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 inspire men and women with experience of baldness alike.
Philip collaborates with professional photographer Daniel Regan and body artist Kat Sinclair to create a wealth of head designs; ranging from his 1000-Swarovski crystal headpiece to painted homages of such artists as Roy Lichtenstein and Hokusai.

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

Headism was exhibited at the NL Dutch Cultural Pop Up Space between 4th - 9th May 2011.
