Artist's description:

I first saw Bob Marley on Top of the Pops in the late 70's. Due to the music being handed down to me by older brothers I was pretty much a Rock kid, into bands like Black Sabbath and Led Zeppelin (still love the Zep!) but I saw Bob on TV with his band and was blown away, he was just the coolist, and I loved the unfamiliar sounds I was hearing. So at the earliest opportunity (the following Saturday to be exact) I bought my first single, 'Is this love' by Bob Marley and the Wailers, it was the first music that I decided was good without it being handed down to me. I remember having it on rotation on my Dad's stereo and playing along to it on my Bongo's. I chose 'Get up Stand up' for the design as I think of it as being the overall message of his music, but also, as I understand it, he closed his shows with this song so would have been the last song that he would have played to an audience. ............................................................................................ 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
