Graham’s fascination with Jimi Hendrix began as a nine-year-old boy, sneaking into his brother’s bedroom to listen to music. Since discovering one of Hendrix’s albums, he has felt an almost celestial connection with the artist. Graham has now spent the past 45 years trying to decipher the profound impact Jimi Hendrix has had on his life, expressing his thoughts through his artwork.
Pieces from the series will be on sale, with a percentage of the proceeds being donated to Mustard Tree. The money raised will help to combat poverty and inequality across Greater Manchester.
About the Artist:
Graham began painting in 1997. After dealing with homelessness and spending time in prison, Graham first came to Mustard Tree in 2009, as a client, and used the centre as a means to create art. Graham became a voice for first-hand experience of homelessness, within the charity, and Mustard Tree’s resident artist. Graham worked as Head of Creative Services, before moving on to become Building and Facilities Manager for the Mustard Tree sites. As a self-taught artist, Graham gravitated towards, acrylic on canvas, mixed media, and oils. Working with layers and detail, Graham creates atmospheric pieces, which range from the chaotic and explosive, to the calm and meditative.
