You could say 34-year-old Chris, from Chicago, is a bit of a Madonna fan.

‘She’s has been my number one idol and inspiration since the age of five,’ says the street artist, who is week unveiling a mural of star in London.

The work, which took five-and-a-half-hours to complete, has been revealed just in time for Madonna’s 60th birthday tomorrow.

Chris, who identifies as a gay man and is also known by his artist name Pegasus, furthermore added of the Material Girl: ‘She has consistently remained a trend setter and image of success and inspiration to many while always staying relevant.’

Chris’s latest work is located outside LGBTI and drag hotspot The Glory, on Kingsland Road in London’s East End.

The piece will also feature in Chris’s upcoming London show, Neon Nights, from 20 October 2008.

‘It is very important for me to honour this woman’
