Elvis Still Rocks
Approached by the Blue Mountains Elvis Festival organisers to create artwork inspired by the King of Rock Elvis Presley. Elvis the king of rock, pushed so many boundaries and was an incredible artist of many talents. I captured him in one of his famous dance moves wearing his blue suede shoes, rhinestone suits and his face as the young strong soldier, that we love to remember 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 to adorn his suit with blue birds 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 lives on.
