Prince in art...



I'm huge into fan art and concept art of other Artists/Entertainers, Movies, stories etc

As colorful as Prince is it makes me interested to know of the 'fan art' matches his level

I've seen some horrid stuff and some very beautifully executed out the box stuff, then the expected replication of Prince

.

Do you have any favorites, that you feel do/do not express Prince?

JoJo's bizarre adventure by codyraycarpenter

In honor of the legendary Prince who just passed away recently, I decided to draw Prince along side the stands named after his work in JoJo's Bizarre Adventure.

From left to right the stands are: Paisley Park, The Gold Experience, and Soft & Wet

These are nice! I drew a symbol with pictures symbolizing names of his songs, and auctioned it off at a couple of places. I wanted to give back the way prince did

It is.

The closest I've come to making Prince art is when I carved a pumpkin in tribute. Circa 1995, so it was all about the symbol.

An Illustrated Tribute to Prince

A collection of illustrations by various artists to honor and pay tribute to the one, the only, Prince Rogers Nelson.
April 26, 2016, 12:00am

I've put together this blog of drawings and paintings to pay tribute to Prince Rogers Nelson.
People grieve and mourn in their own ways.
Being an artist, I've always processed pain and sadness by drawing the things that are on my mind.
I've assembled some pieces by various illustrators done to honor him. It is my sincere hope that this will offer comfort to all who loved him.

Nearly five years have passed since the Minneapolis superstar was found dead at Paisley Park on April 21, 2016. And that’s a mighty long time. Since then, we’ve seen a host of musical tributes, a steady stream of treasures from his vault and a feud among heirs (and the IRS) over his spoils. Today, we look at how fans are keeping his legacy alive. And our longtime critic reflects on how his views of the Purple One’s music have changed over four decades.
Stories by Jon Bream
Star Tribune • April 18, 2021

Superfans who keep Prince’s legacy alive

In different ways, these four people ensure that Prince is more than a memory.

THE PAINTER

He never saw Prince in concert or owned any of his albums. But the day the music icon died, something compelled Dan Lacey to go paint outside Paisley Park.

“I was in the mood to do a large painting,” Lacey said. “So I went down there and set up under the tree right across the street. I felt like this would be useful.”

For the next year, Lacey, of Elko New Market, returned to Paisley daily with his easel and acrylics, and gave away paintings of Prince.

Now, in addition to painting two days a week in Chanhassen, Lacey has become the self-appointed caretaker of Purple mementos that fans leave on Paisley’s fence and in the tunnel connecting Lake Ann Park with Prince’s property.

“The most important thing I do is I retire things,” he explained. And try to repair them and put them on display again.

Modest and soft-spoken, Lacey, 60, also has become an ambassador, cheering fans in person or via social media.

“I’m not the biggest Prince fan,” admitted Lacey, who has never gone inside Paisley Park and has no interest in doing so. “But the fans have [embraced] me. It’s a good group of people. Most of my friends now are Prince people from all over the world.”

In the 1980s, the self-taught, Brooklyn-born artist painted portraits on a Las Vegas street and later in the lobby of the Rio casino. There, he met his future wife, a harpist who urged him to move to her home state of Minnesota about 25 years ago.

In 2000, he created a now-defunct Christian comic strip, “Faithmouse,” in which he once questioned how Prince could sue his fans for posting copyrighted videos online. Then he received a “weird message” on his blog: “Dan, u don’t know how it feels. One day u’ll be famous and then u’ll understand.”

Yes, it was Prince.

With a whimsical streak, Lacey became known for incorporating pancakes in his portraits of famous people, including Barack Obama, Gillian Anderson and Kanye West. He sells his paintings — and print reproductions — on Etsy. One original work was famously purchased by...Macklemore — a nude of Justin Bieber with a pancake on his privates.

Using photos and videos for inspiration, Lacey has painted hundreds of portraits of Prince, selling them for a couple of hundred dollars ($20-$40 for prints).

“These fans are honestly distraught,” he said. “I’m doing something purposeful. I’m supporting the people who would like his legacy to stay alive. I’m just a hack, a happy hack. I’m happy to help.”

Dan Lacey began painting portraits of Prince after his death five years ago. “These fans are honestly distraught. I’m doing something purposeful.”

There is a lot of great Prince art out there and a WHOLE LOT OF CRAP photoshopping of other photographers' images. Colorizing the great Herb Ritts' photos and making them into those fake "2-D" images? Disgusting and frankly, disturbing.

When people create their own art, I can accept lower quality when it's done out of love (even when it's those terrible drawings by CJ, Billy Jack Bitch, who revealed her unrequited love for Prince in his "art" she posted after he died).

But please. Spare me the pencil drawings and other "art" which are basically tracings of photographs, pixel by pixel. Or photoshops that place fans' faces next to Prince as if they are cuddling (gross). Or any artist who paints Prince with a purple face (I see you, terrible spray-can face on the side of Chanhassen Cinema).


Welcome to "the org", laytonian… come bathe with me.

I'm with U on that. There seems to be more of that crap to wade through than not.

Like I'll they did was talk the picture and start painting over it. I love pencil drawings, but simple tracings with no further creativity not so much
