Artist Xavier Benlloch remembers Michael as a nice and shy client who would send his manager to look at Xavier’s work every time before he came to purchase his favourite piece of art work. In Pune for his exhibition, this Ibiza based sculptor and painter spoke about Michael, the King of Pop, the Chaplin family and more.
“Michael Jackson visited my studio several times before he ordered a giant Peter Pan for Neverland,” recalls Benlloch, who also made a custom-made bronze sculpture of Charlie Chaplin for the Chaplin home in Los Angeles.
Michael preferred more of Benlloch’s cartoon sculptures while the Chaplins picked from the collection of his realistic art work series.
