“Je connaissais le pinceau Ygartua . La force de son trait , l’énergie dans sa peinture, ce mouvement qui n’appartient qu’à lui m’ont toujours irrésistiblement attiré. Il me fallait absolument ce peintre et pas un autre pour coucher sur la toile l’incandescence et la fulgurance de la guitare de Prince . Il a très gentiment accepté cette œuvre de commande , qui est inaugurale puisque jamais il n’avait peint à ma connaissance « The Artist ».Le résultat est stupéfiant, d’une beauté et d’une force sidérantes .C’est à mon humble avis l’une des dix plus grandes œuvres du peintre.Je lui en suis éternellement reconnaissant.” Jacques Sebag (Paris, France)
Recently, I had the pleasure of working with a client in France who commissioned a painting of the late musical genius, Prince.
The painting is an original acrylic on canvas, with a blue color scheme that captures the essence of Prince’s signature style. In the painting, Prince is shown playing an electric guitar on stage, his iconic silhouette framed by a spotlight. The client wanted the painting to reflect Prince’s energy and passion for music.
Prince was a legendary musician and performer who left a lasting impact on the world of music. His unique style and sound combined elements of rock, pop, funk, and R&B, and he was known for his electrifying performances that showcased his incredible guitar skills.
For the client in France, commissioning a painting of Prince was a way to pay tribute to the musical icon and capture a moment in time. Paul Ygartua was able to convey Prince’s spirit through the use of bold colors and dynamic brushstrokes, creating a piece of art that captures the energy and intensity of a live performance.
Commissioning a painting is a special way to commemorate a person or moment in time, and this painting of Prince is a testament to the power of art to capture the essence of a person and their legacy. It’s a beautiful tribute to a musical genius who will always be remembered for his talent, passion, and originality.
This painting of Prince is a beautiful work of art that captures the essence of the legendary musician and performer. Its bold blue color scheme and dynamic composition perfectly capture the energy and passion of a Prince performance, making it a fitting tribute to one of the greatest musical icons of our time.
