“KUSH”

THIS IS MY FIRST PIECE FOR AN UPCOMING SHOW IM GOING TO BE APART OF IN THE NEXT UPCOMING MONTHS. ITS A DEDICATION TO A GREAT MUSICIAN AND SOMEONE WHO HAS HAD A PROFOUND IMPACT ON ME ARTISTICALLY, THE LATE GREAT DIZZY GILLESPIE. TO ME HE REPRESENTS THE DEFINITION OF BLACK EXCELLENCE AND THE CASE OF THE CURIOUS AFRICAN AMERICAN MAN. SOMEONE WHO WAS ALWAYS TRYING TO IMPROVE AND CHALLENGE HIMSELF AND MOST OF ALL FIND PEACE AND CLARITY TO THE WORLD HE LIVED IN. HIS ART WAS BEAUTIFUL AND HE PLAYED HIS HORN LIKE A MASTER. THIS IS FOR YOU DIZZY. DIMENSIONS ARE 16X20 ON COLD PRESS PAPER USING ACRYLIC PAINT AND SOFT PASTELS.
