Alon Paul on 365 days of Madonna and creating art out of his obsession

Artist Alon Paul says he hopes that if Madonna ever sees his new show Muse:365, she'll be equal parts flattered and terrified. This time in 2011, Paul quit drinking and created a piece of art of or inspired by the Material Girl every day for the entire year, and he'll display them all at a grand opening Wednesday night at the Art Salon. See the 365 versions of the diva, pick up a commemorative T-shirt and graphic novel created by Paul, and be sure to practice your vogue. We caught up with Paul in advance of creating the very last piece for the show (live models painted in the pop star's likeness) about turning his lifelong obsession into art.
