about this painting:
JOHNNY CASH 2
There are fashion trends in music like in any other field of life. Certain genres are needed in certain times, and later they can either disappear or become classic. Think about it: rock music, hip-hop or country were born to talk about a certain period of history, about a specific group of people, but later became widespread and are unlikely to ever be forgotten.
- Country music is probably least famous of this three. It is understandable because traditional music, which is deeply connected to certain cultural roots, does not usually have a chance to conquer international glory.
- This kind of folk music is associated with the first American immigrants who gave to Anglo-Saxon and Celtic music traditions a new life. It is relatively popular in the United States but almost unknown to the rest of the world.
- However, those who have ever heard this music easily recognize it. Country is gay and cheerful; the instruments used are banjos, steel guitars, fiddles and harmonicas.
- The state of Tennessee is officially recognized as a place where country was born. No wonder, that it was there where an apostle of country Johnny Cash started his musical career.
MAN IN BLACK
Johnny Cash is a true legend of country music. He was born in the beginning of the 20th century, participated in military actions and luckily came back home to create his inimitable music. He mostly started by playing country, rockabilly and gospel music, but proceeded with rock and rock-n-roll music, which made him famous. He received Grammy Award, which is the most prestigious award you can ever get as a musician and is in Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. He always wrote his songs himself. Johnny created an unforgettable image of a strong charismatic man in a black jacket, which brought him love and support of millions of fans.
On this painting, a famous musician is shown by the artists Leonid Afremov in his best years of fame. He is standing on the stage with a guitar in his hands, performing one of his hits. Afremov, being an expressionist, avoids black color, which was essential to the image of Johnny Cash. That is why he looks much more cheerful on canvas, however, it matches his amazing personality and optimistic country spirit.
This painting will be a perfect gift for a true country or rock-n-roll lover. Its energy is very positive and can enlighten any room.
