Elvis still Rocks
INSPIRATION & SECRETS: Approached by the Blue Mountains Elvis Festival organisers to create artwork inspired by the King of Rock Elvis Presley. Elvis pushed so many boundries and started many waves of joy filled movements as an artist of many talents. So I captured him in one of his famous dance moves wearing his blue suede shoes, in one of his wing blinged suits and his face as the young strong soldier, that we love to rember him as. Hidden in his gigantic belt is an eagle, swooping down to catch something, I'm not sure what but it could be our hearts. I chose the birds for his suit as it has a connection to the afterlife, as he is free in spirit now yet also lets our souls feel free with the love and truth he left in his songs. In the background is his name in sparkling red as Elvis will always shine in some way.
