Camden Town Tube portrait of Amy Winehouse unveiled as toxicology report is released

'Amy looks so sad'

Published: August 25, 2011

AS the death of Amy Winehouse continues to feature in the headlines, a portrait of the singer was unveiled at Camden Town tube station this week.

The piece is part of artist Johan Andersson’s 27 Club project, which documents musicians – including Kurt Cobain, Jimi Hendrix and Jim Morrison – who died at the age of 27.

Passing through the station this week, Deborah Grurato, 24, a tourist and a fan of Ms Winehouse, said: “It’s a good representation and it’s great that it’s up here. But maybe they should do something more cheerful to commemorate her. She looks so sad.”

Mr Andersson’s portrait will be displayed for two weeks.

Ms Winehouse was found dead at her home in Camden Square on July 23.

Toxicology reports released by the Winehouse family on Tuesday showed that she had “no illegal substances” in her body when she died.

“Results indicate that alcohol was present, but it cannot be determined as yet if it played a role in her death,” the family said in a statement.

While an official cause of Ms Winehouse’s death is expected to be announced at an inquest at St Pancras Coroner’s Court in October, plans for a charity dedicated to the singer have also run into problems.

Her father, Mitch, said someone else had registered the Amy Winehouse Foundation website domain name before they had a chance to.

It is alleged the registrant, Martin McCann, wishes to sell the family the domain name.

Mr Winehouse has returned fans’ donations until the matter is resolved.
