Gary Clark Jr.

“Messin Round Blues”

Here is a musician who’s painting had been asked for often over the last few years. With the request for a commissioned piece in the UK, I reached out again to photographer Rick Kern of Austin, Texas who provided this emotional portrait of Gary, in the moment, hanging onto a distorted note on his awesome Epiphone Blak & Blu Casino Hollowbody Guitar.

Gary Lee Clark Jr. (born February 15, 1984) is an American guitarist based in Austin, Texas. Clark has shared the stage with numerous legends of rock and roll, and has stated that he is “influenced by blues, jazz, soul, country, and hip hop”. 

Gary Clark Jr’s musical trademarks are his distorted guitar sound and smooth vocal style. Born and raised in Austin, Texas, he began playing guitar at the age of twelve. Clark played small gigs throughout his teens, until he met promoter Clifford Antone, proprietor of the Austin music club Antone’s. Antone’s was the launch pad from which Jimmie and Stevie Ray Vaughan redefined blues at the time. Soon after meeting Clifford, Clark began to play with an array of musical icons, including Jimmie Vaughan. Vaughan and others in the Austin music community helped Clark along his musical path, facilitating his ascent in the Texas rock and roll scene. Clark’s music demonstrates how the blues have shaped virtually every medium of music over the past century, from hip-hop to country.

 

The original commissioned painting is sold and spoken for by my client in the UK.
Thanks again to photographer Rick Kern of Austin, Texas, USA for the collaboration and use of his awesome image.
