James Marshall “Jimi” Hendrix, is one of America’s greatest musicians. Although his mainstream career spanned only four years, he is widely regarded as one of the most influential electric guitarists and celebrated musicians of the 20th century. The rock and roll Hall of Fame describes him as “arguably the greatest instrumentalist in the history of rock music”.
The world’s highest-paid performer, Jimi made headlines at the Woodstock Festival in 1969 and the Isle of Wight Festival in 1970 before his accidental death in London on September 18, 1970.
A mosaic art piece is an extremely labour intensive process. It begins with composing and designing an outline. This is followed by manually cutting mosaic tiles and stained-glass pieces. These must be hand-cut to the desired shape and size using a hammer and hardie. The hardie has been used for at least 2000 years, and is still the most widely used tool for professional mosaic artists worldwide. This is then followed by pasting them on the substrate. Once done, the crevices in the piece need to be filled in and a coat of polish gives each piece its finished look.
