Jimi Hendrix was born on November 27, 1942, in Seattle, Washington. He had a difficult childhood, sometimes living in the care of relatives and even acquaintances at times. Jimi Hendrix is revered as an iconic guitarist and, a groundbreaking performer, an inspired lyricist and an all round wild child, but this 20th century icon had yet another string to his creative bow.
Jimi grew up in a small town outside Seattle in the 1950s. His youth was spent playing sport, going to the coast and being in and amongst nature. Anyone familiar with his songs will know the inferences relating to the Pacific Northwest with its dramatic landscape and uncertain weather, and these were both things that impacted on his sense of the world and informed his creative genius both in terms of music and art.
His earliest artworks were produced while he was still at high school; detailed pictures of college footballers kitted out in their team uniforms but closer examination shows that as time passed a definite style began to develop in his water colours. As his creativity gathered impetus and he began to write songs, his paintings underwent a change. The subjects moved out of focus and the backgrounds began to take centre stage; with this change a more intense, dreamlike mood began to take over.
