I Am - John 5 - MGIAMAP  -Giclee On Canvas Artist Proof Hand Embellished

NOTES: I Am - John 5. A few years ago, I was approached by some collectors out of California to do a commission of Rob Zombie–being a life long fan I quickly agreed. Almost immediately after receiving the finished piece, they started talking about an accompanying piece, this time of legendary Rob Zombie guitarist and solo artist, John 5. Having followed John 5’s career from the early Manson days, I was immediately intrigued. That’s where this piece took a bit of a unique twist. Instead of my usual process of immersing myself in songs and videos prior to starting, the collectors had a unique idea. They decided they would like to be present when the inspiration for the concept struck. I couldn’t guarantee this, of course, but their proposal was a great idea none the less. Before I painted the piece, they decided to fly up to Canada and personally take me to a John 5 solo show and a meet and greet with the man himself. The plan worked to perfection. Not only was John 5 one of the most humble and gracious people I’ve ever had the pleasure of meeting, the show itself was one of the most inspiring concerts I have ever attended with an incredible mix of music, costumes and visuals. The whole thing played out like a horror movie or a very cool Halloween party, and the musicianship was like a punch to the mouth. Being able to witness the transformation between the mild-mannered gentleman we had met a few hours earlier to the possessed character that took the stage was such a unique gift and definitely provided the inspiration we were all hoping for. .

Stickman bio

Trevor “Stickman” Stickel specializes in icon based, pop-realism portraits that capture legendary moments, powerful ideas, and raw emotion. His work is described as gritty-yet fresh, complex-yet simple. Graduating from a Jekyll and Hyde influence early in his career, in which he divided his time between family portraits and airbrush design work on helmets and Harleys, Stickman had the epiphany to combine both styles while reading “According to the Rolling Stones”. Two weeks later he finished his first canvas portrait of Mick Jagger, aptly titled “Please allow me to introduce myself”, which forever changed the direction of his career in the art world. THE MISSION The idea or "mission" behind Stickman’s artwork is to create an artistic tribute to the music and to the musicians that have had a tremendous impact on him and many others. Historically, these tributes would have been limited to photos/posters that adorned the bedroom walls of teenagers and dorm rooms throughout adolescence. Stickman aims to create a style of art that brings these iconic figures back into our lives, and in a manner that adults can display proudly in their homes. THE CONCEPT The concept is to take a realistic portrait and juxtapose it with a background that expresses the feelings and emotions of the subject. This method also allows Stickman to explore other disciplines of art – many of his backgrounds will include abstract, expressionism, impressionism, realism, pop art, street art, surrealism and quite often a combination of these. This is where he gets to enjoy the artistic side of these pieces, while paying additional homage to some of his favorite visual artists. THE HIDDEN MESSAGES AND SYMBOLS In addition to the art itself, Stickman also adds (and quite often hides) his trademarked Stickman symbol (stick figure with devil horns) and the statement "Devil Inside" to the painting. • The Stickman symbol is derived from Stickman’s last name (Stickel) and a common phrase he hears from viewers, "I can't even draw a stick man". The horns represent rock and roll (his primary focus), which is generally regarded as the devil’s music, and references the duality of man (good vs. evil). • The statement "Devil Inside" also references this Jekyll and Hyde type of duality. Stickman often feels there is a difference between Stickman the artist and Trevor Stickel the person. When focused on a subject and working on a piece, he often gets so involved in the subject he finds himself emulating them in the way he dresses and acts, similar to a method actor. • The signature on the bottom right corner usually shows the Stickman symbol imitating the subject. THE TITLE The title of each piece is often overlooked but may very well be the most important piece of the puzzle. Stickman looks for a lyric that he believes personifies the subject or his feeling toward that subject and from there, begins to create an image and feeling that takes the viewer to that emotional state of mind. The titles are always a lyric from the subject's song but never the title of a song. If the viewer is a fan of the subject, they should almost hear the lyric or feel the emotion of the lyric when looking at the piece. Knowing the title completes the emotional connection to the painting and usually reveals a personal trait about the subject.
