Elvis Presley

‘The King’

A rock series just wouldn’t be complete without Elvis? This print is from an original painting I composed, choosing to sketch him out, and paint him in a look from his 1968 comeback. I just had to do Elvis in black leather! I remember the first record I ever heard played in my life, was Elvis, coming from my older sister’s bedroom.

Elvis Presley – (January 8, 1935 – August 16, 1977) a was an American singer, actor, and musician. A cultural icon, he is commonly known simply as “Elvis,” and is also sometimes referred to as “The King of Rock ‘n’ Roll” or “The King”. In 1954, Presley began his career as one of the first performers of rockabilly, an uptempo fusion of country and rhythm and blues with a strong back beat. His novel versions of existing songs, mixing “black” and “white” sounds, made him popular—and controversial—as did his uninhibited stage and television performances. He recorded songs in the rock and roll genre, with tracks like “Hound Dog” and “Jailhouse Rock” later embodying the style. Presley had a versatile voice and had unusually wide success encompassing other genres, including gospel, blues, ballads and pop. To date, he has been inducted into four music halls of fame.

In the 1960s, Presley made the majority of his 31 movies. In 1968, he returned to live music in a television special the ’68 Comeback Special. The show featured some lavishly staged studio productions. Other songs however, were performed live with a band in front of a small audience—Presley’s first live appearance as a performer since 1961. The live segments saw Presley clad in black leather, singing and playing guitar in an uninhibited style—reminiscent of his rock and roll days. Rolling Stone called it “a performance of emotional grandeur and historical resonance.” Throughout his career, he set records for concert attendance, television ratings and recordings sales. He is one of the best-selling and most influential artists in the history of music. Health problems, drug addiction and other factors led to his death aged 42.

      Hi Marc,
      I’m excited about the Willie Nelson as well. I can’t wait to start. As of yet, I have not offered the Elvis on canvas, but that could happen. I’d be curious what size would best fit your needs? You can email me direct to throw around some ideas.
