Musical Mojo

Richard Francisco's avatar Richard Francisco

I will be painting a collage of "Iconic" piano players. The separate canvases (5 of them) will create a larger image to be displayed in 5 windows on Pearl street side of Mojo's Dueling Piano Bar. The canvases will be "built to fit" inside of the windows. They will have a musical/piano motif. Piano keys, music bars, and notes carried throughout to help the piece read as a "whole" and will be laced with images of the all time greatest piano players like Ray Charles, Elton John, Jerry LeeLewis, and Alicia Keys with a nod to other icons like Schroeder (Peanuts) and Dr. Teeth(The Muppets). Of special note, all of the painting is done with my finger, which gives it a very "loose" look and graphic quality.
