Artist Notes:
This is the first edition Black Light Electric Voodoo Fire is an 18" x 24" --10 color Black light screen print done in a street style painting technique on 130lb French Paper. This is limited small edition of 115 prints. It is a portrait of Jimi Hendrix from a sketch I did after being inspired by all the street art in the narrow alleys in Amsterdam . The piece was originally conceived as a painting. After completing the painting, I decided to do a small run of prints for my collectors. The first run done in non-black light Golden Acrylics sold
out in a matter of hours upon release.

I originally intended to do the piece as a "true black light" poster using fluorescent inks. "True black light" meaning a poster that is designed to look good under a black light as opposed to just a print with some fluorescent ink thrown in random places. All the ink was hand mixed using fluorescent pigments. The paper is loaded with optical brightener making it glow purple.This image comes alive under a black light!

The original image was painted using brushes, stencils and spray paint. Each color was hand painted separately on paper and then made into a film positive for screen printing. It was screen printed using hand mixed fluorescent inks resulting in extremely rich vibrant colors that literally vibrate off the page. I think I may be doing a series of black light posters. I wanted to do it years ago, but never got inspired. This print may have just done the trick.
