This work aims at exploring the existing commercial relationships between companies and celebrity artists. The main relationship is a symbiotic collaboration seeking an increase in sales to both parties.
In the present analysis, the different relationships that the company and the artist-celebrity establish with each other, and the strategies established based on the transfer of concepts from the figure of the artist-celebrity to a series of commercial products generated specifically for this purpose are explored. Also, the existing bibliography across various disciplines is analyzed, contrasting them to create a discursive line to brings them all together. The theoretical applications presented in this research are illustrated using practical cases to exemplify the various ways in which these relationships are manifested.
