Jimi Hendrix was an eminent American musician, singer, and songwriter. Jimi is widely regarded as one of the most influential electric guitarists in the history of popular music, and one of the most celebrated musicians of the 20th century. As a child Jimi often colored, but after buying a guitar, visual arts took a back-seat in his daily routine. It wasn’t until Jimi became a rock star that he rekindled his interest in drawing and painting.
He created his drawings by hand using colored markers. Jimi's aperiodic tessellation is the repetition of unique soulful patterns or dissimilar shapes without any spacing. His abstraction of the reality, that he could see music in color, is imagery that reveals an astonishing personal perspective that most people never even knew existed. Jimi’s expression, by a master artist who was able to create a voice for his generation and masterworks of fine art. The Gallery of Music & Art is pleased to present the art of Jimi Hendrix in traditional serigraphy technique.
Jota Leal is perhaps the most prominent Surrealist Portrait Painters of his generation and his works are highly valued internationally by collectors, for his intense, psychologically charged works. As each painting progresses the artist learns more of the identity and personality of the sitter. Jota's research deepens, correspondingly so does the and enigmatic quality of the personality on the canvas, gesturally, each brushstroke elicits a bit of truth in the mosaic of life. The Gallery of Music & Art is looking forward to exhibit his latest original creations which are tribute to famous musicians such as Prince and Jimi Hendrix.
P. D. Williams’ Silk Art Creations spring from African aesthetics with their emotional intensity, pulsing dissonant color tones and figural distortion. The artist has developed transcendent symbolic imagery to tell rhythmic storylines in his work created with rows of hand-laid blended silk threads. Each section of color is a single thread laid by hand in a spiral, a change in direction, elicits facets and jeweled patterns. His juxtaposed color has metrical cadence not unlike music, these contrasting currents of color enhance the emotive mood of each vivid image. There is no stitching or weaving involved; every work is done entirely by hand, making each an original work. The Gallery of Music & Art will exhibit several unique silk art creations at Red Dot Miami, 2016.
Zura Abramishvili is a Georgian artist who generally works with acrylic, gouache and oil. Although the fine dot tessellation of his work is graphic in nature, Zura takes an intense non-traditional approach to depicting the human figure. Characterized by a textured dot and linear style, decorated with biomorphic forms, mirroring the mosaic of the complex personality of the subjects. He has created a number of paintings featuring Jimi Hendrix and other noted musicians over the years.
These paintings of consensus transcend continents and cultures uniting diverse peoples in a common song. The Gallery of Music & Art is pleased to exclusively represent Zura for his paintings and multiples in the United States, and for the second time in Miami Art week.

Ryan Spiritas is a contemporary expressionist whose artistic style emotes a refreshing, yet twisted, portrayal of a 21st-century avant-garde, through an exploration of form and color. His unique and inspired style directs the viewer into the world of daydreaming, contrasting with random dark deliberations that still give a lighthearted feel to his creations.
Born in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia, Fekadu Mekasha is now based in fabulous Las Vegas. The artist’s medium of choice is wire mesh which he layers into figurative sculptures. He carefully cuts each layer of mesh to achieve the correct tones needed for these amazing portraits. Wire mesh allows Mekasha to work intimately with the material allowing a hands-on spontaneity and creative freedom to the art-making process. Each work is several layers deep as individual edited planes are spaced apart forming the final image, bestowing the portraits with a mesmerizing depth and dimensionality.
Carter’s work is recognized as a personal declaration of independence, a voyage of spiritual self-discovery. Growing up as an intuitive creative and with an artist mother, Carter had a paintbrush in her hand before she could even walk.
A painter’s “Palette” is a rigid, flat surface on which an artist arranges and mixes paints. A palette is usually made of wood and is designed to be held in the artist’s hand and rest on her arm. In Carter’s case “Pallets” are a big part of her art. The “Pallet Portraits” are made of wooden shipping pallets. These Thoreau-like pallet artist panels are versatile, recyclable, sustainable and universally recognized.
