This is my piece for Medium:Rare's first exhibitiion, a quote by John Lennon, Before Elvis there was nothing. I chose Elvis Presley as my explorer, as I he combined gospel, country and folk music only to discover, rockabily. The final artwork is painted on canvas with 3 colours + some glitter powder.

This is a great concept! Clever and different.

"he combined gospel, country and folk"

I would say he combined gospel, country, and blues.

Cool design, had a look at the print too - i'm 50/50 on the glitter tho! Maybe those shiny little confetti stars could have worked? :)
