Louis A. by S. Christopher James ©August 2020. A six-color serigraph measuring 9.375 x 12-inch image printed on 100-percent cotton cover weight paper. This print is a limited edition of only 18 hand-pulled prints. Each one is signed and numbered by the artist.
Louis A, (Louis Armstrong), or as he was affectionally nicknamed, Satchmo, was a trumpeter and vocalist. He was among the most influential figures in jazz. His career spanned different eras in the history of jazz. He was beloved by most for his gravelly voice and robust horn. An entertainer of the highest order. I believe this work captures all that is good about the personality and the genre. Dancing and random lines and doodles mirror the improvisational nature of jazz music.
