Thelonius Monk ©2018 by S. Christopher James. Thelonious Monk was a fascinating jazz pianist and composer. He had a unique improvisational style and made numerous contributions to the genre. The signature hats that he wore were just as unique to his style as were his compositions. The piano on his head not only represents his hats but implies a vision that insinuates his craft. It informs us of his genius that is timeless even to this day. Featured in the Exhibition NEXT A Biennial of Contemporary Print, Houston, Texas, and City of Dallas Office of Cultural Affairs 2nd annual ART214 Juried Exhibition. Available in the store in a limited edition, hand-pulled screen print or giclee fine art print.
