Knabe & Mankowitz Collection Jimi Hendrix, 1967
Limited Edition Screenprint
Edition of 200
24” X 24” Unframed
From the Knabe Mankowitz Collection: A special collaboration between Walter Knabe, an American multi-disciplinary fine artist, and renowned English rock and roll photographer, Gered Mankowitz.
The first in the collection is Jimi Hendrick, titled Jimi ’67. The edition of 200 was created using a 1967 portrait photo shot in black and white by Mankowitz titled “Jacket & Hands”.
Walter and Gered worked together to create artwork that preserved the integrity of Gered’s photo – in which Hendrix was wearing one of his iconic, fashion-forward military style jackets – while capturing his essence and the London style of the 1960’s.
The 24” x 24” piece is signed by both Knabe and Mankowitz. It blends Knabe’s signature hand crafted screen printing and hand painted detail using 18 paint colors intricately layered on hand torn heavy, tactile paper.
