B. B. King
B. King: For more than half a century, Riley B. King- better known as B. B. King – has defined the blues for a worldwide audience. He was born on a plantation in Mississippi in 1925 and started recording in the 1940s. Over the years, he developed one of the world’s most identifiable guitar styles. “When I sing, I play in my mind; the minute I stop singing orally, I start to sing by playing Lucille.”
“Music Legends” is a series of paintings. The process starts with a 33LP vinyl record, which is melted, stretched and molded to compliment the specific artist. The record is then painted to reflect the energy and feeling of that particular artist. The record is mounted on a 15” by 15” panel which is painted to compliment the record.
