Artist's description:

I wanted to create a design dedicated to Gil Scott-Heron for a while and it was his death that made me realise it was about time. I'd been to see Mulatu at the Jazz Cafe on friday night and I was still fired up from the gig on saturday morning until I heard on the radio that Gil had died aged 62, very sad news indeed. I was trying to work out which song lyrics to work with, 'I think i'll call it morning', 'Pieces of a man', 'Hello Sunday, hello road', or 'Peace go with you brother' maybe? I felt 'The revolution will not be televised' was too obvious but the more I listened to it the more it had to be used, its such an iconic piece and very much his most well known work that wouldn't be ignored, I had to use it. ............................................................................................ This piece is partly painted and partly screen printed. I paint the background and sides, print the design and paint any detail of the design that goes round the sides. unlike my prints on paper that are printed in a run and numbered accordingly I dont number the woodboard pieces as i paint and print them one at a time, finishing off painting detail on the sides. so i dont see these as strictly prints but more like one-off pieces as they are hand-made even though i do several of them. This piece has a whole drilled in the back at the top so are ready to hang.

Materials used:

Acrylic paint on mdf woodboard

Gil Scott-Heron
