Gabz Jimi Hendrix, Voodoo Child Poster Release From Dark Hall Mansion

Dark Hall Mansion is thrilled to reveal their latest officially licensed Jimi Hendrix limited edition prints, "Jimi Hendrix, Voodoo Child" by leading contemporary artist, Gabz, and on sale this Thursday, September 10th, 2015!

Dark Hall Mansion, under license from Authentic Hendrix and Bravado International, their worldwide licensing agent, will release Gabz's fantastical vision of a peaceful yet creatively unbound Jimi. With a nod to one of Jimi's most extraordinary songs, 'Voodoo Child (Slight Return),' a both gorgeous and ferocious showcasing of Jimi's unequaled talents, Gabz perfectly captures Jimi's perpetually dual nature, both here and of another place, through two masterful pieces that harken to the best of vintage Polish rock poster artwork of the late '60s and early '70s. On that, from the outset we explained our admiration for this period and style to Gabz and he was instantly familiar and at once drawn to its aesthetic, having deep personal experience and background as a graduate of the Academy of Fine Arts in Poznan, Poland.

Gabz's vision for his Jimi was a bold evocative rock portrait using strong, rich lines, vibrant colors, and highlights of delicate line work, at once evocative of classic Polish prints of the period as well as referencing the best of black light posters that so dominated the walls and bedrooms of countless rock fans everywhere. His Standard edition perfectly captures Jimi's ethereal nature with seemingly endless creative waves emanating from Jimi's mind, hearing sounds and songs only he could hear, guitar strap hinting at his ready axe. Gabz's Variant edition is an electrified beauty, stripped of all and distilling Jimi to his essence, all the while underscoring Gabz's striking detail and line work throughout Jimi's face, the Variant including a simple strike of Jimi's actual signature to complete a piece that begs for black light showcasing.
