2011: FINE WINE ART. Sunday Times. April 2011.
Artist Frank O'Dea, inspired by Chris deBurgh's plan to flog his wine collection at Christie's for an estimated eur230,000 next month, is rewarding buyers of artwork from his Westbury Mall gallery.
The "Kris da Bug" collection, on view in the window of the Balla Bán Art Gallery, features such vintages as "Patricia's Paint Stripper", "Lady in Red" and "Rosanna's rose", names in honour of Rosanna Davison, right, the former Miss World sired by Chris.
Frank, an avid Chris fan, warns "consumption of this wine could leave you high on emotion". I'll say. It's mere supermarket plonk emblazoned with Chris-related labels designed by Frank.
