ELVIS PRESLEY –
Elvis Aaron Presley (January 8, 1935 – August 16, 1977) was an American singer and actor. Regarded as one of the most significant cultural icons of the 20th century, he is often referred to as the “King of Rock and Roll” or simply “the King”.
Quite a difficult painting for me, as I have no affinity with the subject. Although undoubtedly, a massive musical icon of the 20th century, I do not particularly like his music, or his lifestyle. Most of my paintings have been of my own icons, so it was an exercise to see how much my own feelings effect the outcome…
Not sure I’m best judge, but I’m not unhappy with it.
