Question for the artist?

Artist's description:

Street art in your own home by Cult Artist Sly.

The Open Air Love & Peace Festival in Fehmarn, Germany on September 6, 1970 wasn’t, really. It rained and blew a gale, Jimi Hendrix was cancelled and Hells Angels, burnt down the organizers’ trailer, at least they were blamed. Jimi Hendrix was meant to go home on the 5th but stayed to play on the 6th: "I’ll play tomorrow. Tomorrow at noon. I don’t have to, but I want to. The fans are out there in the dirt, I have to play for them.”
A week later he was dead.
The death of Hendrix brought the hopes of the 60s to a crashing, full stop: Peace and Love had gone stale and Vietnam protests and violence had replaced them. This stencil painting by Juan Sly, taken from rare, 16mm footage and some stage photos, has frozen the Popiconic moment when Hendrix sang “Hey Joe” for the last time.

It is likely that Juan Sly has become the biggest seller of original artworks in the UK. An artist exhibiting in mainly spray stencils and oils. He has exhibited at the Saatchi (a proper gallery with pillars and everything!) alongside the likes of Banksy, Terry O'Neil, Tracy Emin and Vic Reeves and now has a permanent collections in Germany, Detroit and Uk, alongside Damien Hirst and some other artists you might of heard of plus private collections around the globe. His works rock from humour to anti-war, sex to surreal. Particularly fond of the stencil medium as it allows him to quickly respond to events and ideas and gives the work that gritty illegal look. The stencils naturally allow the works to be resprayed and so become affordable and disposable. He likes the fact that people can buy art that they like and not to show off how much they can afford. You can find them in bedsits, legal offices in the Temple or stuck to a fence in Bristol.
