Edward Lodewijk Van Halen
Eddie Van Halen is the twelfth in my "Everyday Saints" series. Considered one of the all-time greatest guitar players in rock history he also has an amazing story of excelling beyond odds and staying true to his dreams.
This piece is done on a 12x12 cloth then mounted on a 12x12 frame for hanging. A mix of sequins, embroidery, and seed beads.
It was an honor and a pleasure to lean into the energy of EVH. When a dear and loving friend commissioned this piece I dug into his story and energy to be greatly pleased with what I found. Not only did he mean so much to this sweet friend but the impression he made on this planet went far beyond the fret board.
Sky is a non-traditional sequin flag (drapo) artist who blends styles, techniques, and her unique interpretations to create one of a kind spiritual art pieces. Each flag depicts the symbol or image of the spirit to which it is devoted and can take anywhere for a few months to years to complete. The flags are sewn into a brilliant mosaic of sequins and beads that create the story of the spirit which they depict. Containing tens of thousands of hand stitched sequins infused with prayer and energy they are beautiful collectables.
This was a commissioned piece.
I also would be happy to discuss creating a custom ancestor tribute piece of a loved one or icon that made a difference in your life.
