It became known as a legendary concert with The Wailers
Bob Marley, pioneering reggae musician and cultural icon, fronting his band the Wailers. An untimely death did nothing to dissuade millions from keeping his music alive.
Well, I guess I get very inspired by Bob, and have decided to make a whole series… I know, there are already many Bob Marley portraits paintings in the world, but well, somehow everyone is a little bit different, conveying the way we perceive these artists and their music…
I heard Bob Marley for the first time around 1980… I was spending some days in the Provence, y my brother, he played him to em and at once I loved it… his voice and the whole life feeling I heard in it simply met my wavelength. I recorded the disc on a cassette -which I still have!- and since them, i never stopped listening to him, aleays with the same delight.
I have wanted to dedicate him a series of art work for a long time yet, but somehow, there were always some other priorities… who knows why I suddenly started tonight… perhaps because Kev Moore came back to me from a gig in Germany, and he is a wonderful interpret of Bob Marley’s songs… who knows!
