An exhibition of art inspired by Michael Jackson opened Tuesday in Helsinki with organizers insisting it was not a "celebration" of the singer, still dogged by abuse allegations a decade after his death. "Michael Jackson: On the Wall" brings together old and new works depicting the iconic pop star and his impact on popular culture, by artists including Andy Warhol, American photographer David LaChapelle and British potter Grayson Perry.Elsewhere, a life-size portrait by Kehinde Wiley, commissioned by Jackson himself shortly before his death in 2009, features the star in jewelled armor on horseback surrounded by cherubs, after a portrait by Rubens of King Philip II of Spain.Mihaltianu said that interest in his piece, from 1994, has grown again every time Michael Jackson has hit the headlines over the years.
