Art Description

Painting: Oil on Canvas.

This is a piece that was a part of a collection linked with the infamous "27 club" and was a comment on how celebrities' lives and deaths are celebrated and romaticised. This piece in particular is using a very clusterphobic, flat space and a bed that's way too small for the figure, Jimi Hendrix, to represent the artist being trapped in a self-destructive life in order to continue doing what he/she loves.
