Discover The Art of El Miles Davis::


Many know Miles Davis was one of the greatest visionaries and most important figures in jazz history, what some don't know is that he was also a remarkable painter. Davis began painting in 1980, eleven years before his death. In that time he managed to finish a huge body of work. Davis was mostly a self taught painter and he first experimented on primitive figures and later with Color and Composition. Here are some glorious examples of his work:


R.U. Legal


The Kiss


Spider Web


Josephine Baker


Blue Green


Donquiote


Jazz


Ezz Thetic
