Bob Marley, “One Love”, Original Painting
Medium/Materials: Acrylic paint on Canvas
An inspirational song, by the beloved and revered Bob Marley, whose music, even after his death continues to inspire and influence music, pop culture and politics.
His song shares his dream of all nations to stop fighting and become one and peace and love to all...his lyrics also shines a light on the oppressed and the oppressors.
Michelle pays tribute to the Jamaican reggae singer, songwriter, by portraying him in all his Rastafarian glory, against a beautifully executed gold leaf background. His inhaling of his “ganja” symbolically pulling in the viewer.
Like a halo, within his rastocap, Michelle imbues his infamous chorus, “One Love, One Heart, Lets Get Together and Feel Alright.”
