“In a generation struck by digital shallowness, Philip Levine stands out as a unique figure and a roll model for others. His originality, freshness and creative talent makes him a strong candidate to get into the shoes of the likes of Bowie, Warhol and Basquiet as a total artist, urban icon and sex symbol.” Alon Shtruzman - Media entrepreneur.
“The first time I saw Philip he was sporting an incredible headpiece made of Swarovski crystals. I was so amazed that I approached him, touched it and asked thousands of questions. I love creativity and I love it when someone has the strength to impose theirs in such an incredibly beautiful and original way.” Mimma Viglezio – Executive Vice President Gucci Group.
“You should be the next Simon Cowell.” Interviewed LIVE on Virgin Radio Canada (Toronto) with Bllie, Mad Dog & Planet Maurie.
“Philip is leagues beyond being your not-so-basic tastemaker, lifestylist or creative maverick. He is also a big-thinker, a talent-spotter and a generous soul who loves to see others flourish – the clue lies in the fact that he likes the mirrors on his head and not just in front of his own face.” Dej Mahoney – Producer & Entertainment Lawyer, All Our Business.
“Philip Levine – fashion icon, impresario, independent publisher – is arguably the most gifted young creative anywhere in the UK. His work is spectacular; and, more importantly, it is life-affirming. He’s not one to watch; he’s the one to watch.” Musa Okwonga – Poet, football writer, and musician with the band Benin City.
“Philip’s art has a fantastic way of grabbing attention and breaking down barriers, it invites people who have never met him before to ask questions about art, which is a rare thing. He is also the only artist I have ever known to use his head as a canvas.” Nicolas Ruston – Artist.
“Pip’s head designs are the ultimate expression of the Art of Accessoriasation, he blows me away as a creative but even more so as a friend.” Gigi Morley – Fashion journalist, consultant & presenter – Rocks, Frocks & Cocktails
“Finding a way to make a statement today in a world full of statements that we generally ignore is not the easiest thing to do but Phil has certainly found a way…difficult to ignore…” Marc Rogoff – Photographer.
“Philip’s way of making a statement and reaching out to the media is absolutely CREATIVE! Love the energy and dedication he puts into his work. I look forward to working with Philip and hope he brings this one-of-a-kind style to New York City.” Marla Russo – President, Bella Public Relations, Inc.
“In these days of exhibitions popping up in every other free space I would estimate that Philip manages to get more creative and original art on his head than on 80% of the gallery walls around.” Scroobius Pip – Poet and musician with the band dan le sac Vs Scroobius Pip.
“If you can keep your head when you have lost your hair and all about you have still got theirs…” Ben Moore – Conceptual artists and entrepreneur.

“Philip redefines the words unique and original with his weird and wonderful talent for the unexpected. His creativity and energy knows no bounds.” David Gilbert – Arts consultant, Contemporary Arts Society & Culture Label.
“Philip embodies two of the key traits which make the best entrepreneurs: he has no shortage of great ideas – from head-crystals to Lazy Gramophone to Art Below – but he also has the energy, ingenuity and wit to put them into action, follow them through and make them successes.” Josh Spero – Senior Editor, Spear’s magazine.
“You can see a wide range of unpredictable creativity in this world through Philip’s head.” Pablo Ganguli – Impresario
“Consistent, tenacious, but above all creative.” Duncan Cargill – Creative consultant to brands.
“I’ve just discovered your work via a friend on the Internet. What an absolutely fantastic idea – creating positivity out of something that so many men fear, experience and hate about their appearance. A best friend of mine, 25, has been losing his hair since he was 16, and I hear the heartbreak and dent in his confidence it has had. Congratulations on all your hard work and what you have achieved, your designs are truly brilliant. I’m certain your support towards CALM will help many young men cope with what may seem a weakness, but in reality makes us all so much more open minded – I know I would never change the fact that I have depression, no matter how much it drains me.” Anna Jordan – Art Student.
“Just read your article in Bizarre Mag. I lost my hair 2 years ago to Alopecia. I love your art…” Emily – Bizarre Magazine reader.
