When we recently commissioned the world renowned artist HAZE to create a piece for the heir to Coltrane Curtis' throne, baby Ellington, we never knew that it would make it all the way to the blogosphere! We’re honored and overjoyed that Ellington’s piece has received its own article on 12oz Prophet. Check out an excerpt below and read the whole article by clicking Ellington’s painting above.
I have always considered legacy and what we leave behind as a big part of any artists life mission,
and there is something special about a piece that is guaranteed to be a part of someone else’s life long after one’s own journey.
I especially cherish the works I have by friends who have passed, and it’s a great notion to think of your father collecting art for you before you are even old enough to be conscious of it.
