‘Natty Music 2’ was painted by Gabby from GW Art last week as a commissioned piece from the GW Art original ‘Natty Music’ that had ‘Rasta’ colours in the background, red, yellow and green. Some acrylic texture was added to this black and white version as well!
GW Art’s Inspiration for Painting Natty Music:
Jamaican men with dreadlocks are sometimes called ‘natty dreads’. From their youth or as early as in the womb, music is already a part of them because it is a part of their families. As they mature, some become songwriters, as creative words are used to make natural, mystical music flow from their head.
‘Dancing on the Beat’ made its debut at GW Art’s Christmas Pop-Up Shop at Chai Studios’ Trunk show last Saturday. It was SOLD on the same night!
It was quite an adrenaline rush for the artist, Gabby to see this old sketch come to life.
GW Art is looking to produce more Masterpieces like this in the New Year to come! So look out for more and Email, Call or Whats App Gabby a.k.a Suga to see what else is still available from the Christmas Collection.
