Description of piece: Jimi Hendrix was known as one of the most inventive and talented guitarist/musicians ever. He was also an acclaimed sketcher and painter mostly in watercolors. This is a framed limited edition serigraph of one of his most famous paintings. Every edition was signed by his sister Janie Hendrix as authenticity of the original.
Artist bio: Rare paintings by Jimi Hendrix have been found by former roadie James ‘Tappy’ Wright.
Wright was part of the London team who managed the guitarist in the UK and toured with him. He obtained the paintings in 1979.
Recalling how he got the paintings Wright explained: “Jimi would do two things when he was travelling around. He would either write songs or draw and paint. Most of the drawings he would just crumple up and throw away.
“I remember saying to him: ‘don’t throw them away, give them to me'. It didn’t seem like a big deal at the time, to be honest. I’ve only just found them again. I had them folded up and stashed away in a brown envelope somewhere.”
