Echo has announced the Jimi Hendrix 2021 Print Series. This officially licensed limited-edition series will showcase some of today's biggest and brightest visual artists, creating works inspired by guitar icon Jimi Hendrix.
First in the series is a print by artist Dirty Donny commemorating Hendrix's performance from March 1968 in Ottawa, Ontario. This print will be available starting Friday, January 29 at 2 p.m. EST / 11 a.m. PST.
Dirty Donny said: "I was really stoked to get to work on this official Hendrix piece for Echo and add my art to his legacy of amazing posters. I hand-inked it like they did back in the day and choose some vibrant colors for the screen printing that I know would pop out nice. I also selected a show that took place back in the day in my hometown of Ottawa Canada."
Added Janie Hendrix, the late guitarist's adopted sister and estate operator: "It's always interesting to see Jimi, his art, and his essence through the eyes of other creatives. Their artistic interpretations bringing out special nuances of Jimi others may not have seen. And we're extremely pleased to have some of today's best and brightest joining us to bring to life this unique and beautiful work."
