Amy Winehouse - Tribute To Amy Winehouse Unveiled In London's Camden Underground
A tribute to Amy Winehouse has been revealed in a London Underground tube station as the anniversary of the late singer's death approaches. The Sun have reported that a poster of a painting done of the 'Back To Black' singer has been unveiled in Camden Town tube station, the area at which she lives and more than anywhere else in the world became a huge icon.
The painting was created by Swedish artist Johan Andersson and has become an iconic image of the singer after it was made public just two weeks after she'd died aged 27 last summer following alcohol poisoning. Winehouse lived a short walk from the station and was well-known in the area. Her three-bedroom house in Camden was turned into a shrine by fans of the artist, with bottles of booze and cigarette packets left outside the gates in honour of the star's boozy lifestyle. It was put up for sale by her dad Mitch Winehouse in May of this year after he decided against using it as HQ for his recently set up 'Amy Winehouse Foundation'.
The billboard will be shown for two weeks on platform one of Camden Tube Station. Her parents will be commemorating the death with a traditional Jewish ceremony that'll include prayers and lighting of candles.
