Madonna Louise Ciccone (/tʃɪˈkoʊni/; Italian: [tʃikˈkoːne]; born August 16, 1958) is an American singer-songwriter and actress. She is considered one of the most influential figures in popular culture and has often been referred to as the "Queen of Pop". Madonna is noted for her continual reinvention and versatility in music production, songwriting, and visual presentation. She is also known for pushing the boundaries of artistic expression in mainstream music, while maintaining control over every aspect of her career. Her works, which incorporate social, political, sexual, and religious themes, have generated both controversy and critical acclaim.
Madonna moved to New York City in 1978 to pursue a career in modern dance. After performing as a drummer, guitarist, and vocalist in the rock bands Breakfast Club and Emmy, she rose to solo stardom with her debut studio album, Madonna (1983). She followed it with a series of successful albums, including all-time bestsellers Like a Virgin (1984), True Blue (1986) and The Immaculate Collection (1990) as well as Grammy Award winners Ray of Light (1998) and Confessions on a Dance Floor (2005). Madonna has amassed many number-one singles throughout her career, including "Like a Virgin", "La Isla Bonita", "Like a Prayer", "Vogue", "Take a Bow", "Frozen", "Music", "Hung Up", and "4 Minutes".
With sales of over 300 million records worldwide, Madonna is noted as the best-selling female music artist of all time by Guinness World Records. She is the most successful solo artist in the history of the U.S. Billboard Hot 100 chart and holds the record for the most number-one singles by a female artist in Australia, Canada, Italy, Spain, and the United Kingdom. With a revenue of over U.S. $1.5 billion from her concert tickets, she remains the highest-grossing solo touring artist of all time. Madonna was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2008, her first year of eligibility. She was ranked as the greatest woman in music by VH1, and as the greatest music video artist of all time by MTV and Billboard. Rolling Stone also listed Madonna among the 100 Greatest Artists of All Time and the 100 Greatest Songwriters of All Time.
About Alan Bodner:
The creative process of Alan Bodner is spontaneous, unpredictable, and often chaotic. Bodner’s art is a mastery of original painting, digital imagery, and dimensional paper sculpture. The vibrant, theatrical compositions embody a menagerie of original characters, personalities, and monsters in surreal, complex settings. With cultural references to the past, present, and his personal vision of the future, Bodner compounds, distorts, and exaggerates for emotional effect—the result consistently friendly and engaging. His fine art is featured in galleries and museums throughout the U.S.—including the Paley Center For Media in Beverly Hills—and ranges from pop surrealism prints to multi-tier geometric assemblage.
Raised in Portland, Oregon, by an extended family of dancers, musicians, toy distributors, and clothing designers, Bodner’s childhood was an overload of creative forces that nurtured a timeless personality: an esoteric mix of Road Runner, Peter Pan, and Ideal’s Mr. Machine. After an adolescence inspired by Erte, Miro, and mid-century pop art, Bodner moved to Los Angeles and developed his talents at Art Center College of Design.
Bodner’s fine art is an extension of an Emmy Award-winning, 25-year career as an Art Director for numerous studios and production companies, including the Walt Disney Company, Warner Bros., DreamWorks, The Cartoon Network, and Filmation, to name a few. Mighty Mouse, The Fat Albert Show, Heckle & Jeckle, and Pee Wee’s Playhouse comprise his early credits—followed by Looney Tunes theatrical shorts with Bugs Bunny, Daffy Duck, Porky Pig and Sylvester & Tweety. Credits include the Emmy-nominated Kim Possible, Phineas & Ferb, The Replacements, Mickey’s Twice Upon A Christmas, The Iron Giant, Cinderella II, Neighbors From Hell, The Life & Times of Juniper Lee, the classic Bugs Bunny short Carrotblanca, and many more. His five Annie Award nominations include a win for Warner Bros. The Iron Giant and Emmy for Disney’s Tangled Series.
