about this painting:

BB King

The king of blues

Leonid Afremov has several canvases dedicated to famous people, particularly to musicians – thus, in this one he depicted the king of blues –BB King in perhaps his best years. If you are interested in the career of this musician who, by the way, left us not so long ago at a rather respectable age, then you will surely remember his image at one of his most famous concerts – he closed his eyes in a whirlwind of colors that swirled him better than his songs. He is dressed as usual to the nines –he has a chic suit that includes shirt, jacket, pants and a bow, of course – an essential attribute of the costume of every bluesmen. We can read all his emotions on his face – he seems to be asleep enjoying his own music – such calm can be afforded by a musician at the height of his fame only, which was BB King at that time. His fingers masterfully slide along the neck of the guitar, extracting the most amazing sounds from it and it seems that they reach us through the canvas.

Bluesman for the ages

Well, of course, we can't but tell you some interesting facts about the King of Blues about which you, perhaps, know nothing:

  1. BB King is the king of blues. According to the results of a survey conducted in 2011 by Rolling Stone magazine, BB King is in sixth place in the list of the “Top 100 Guitarists of All Time”.
  2. Riley B. King was born September 16, 1925 in Itte Bene, Mississippi, USA. He served in the army during World War II (1939–1945), and after demobilization he returned to a cotton plantation. On weekends, he played blues on the streets of the nearest cities.
  3. In 1948, Riley managed to sing at WDIA radio station of Memphis, and since then he has increasingly begun to appear on the air. For performances he adopted a more catchy name –

Blues Boy King or BB King.
