Elton John, “Rocketman”, Original Painting
Medium/Materials: Acrylic paint on Canvas
Elton John: The Music Man, The Legend, The Colour, The Glasses! Michelle Vella captures the sequins spectacle of Elton John’s flamboyant personality, on and off stage by presenting him with his signature glitter and glam!
This legendary rock star embodies the spirit of rock and roll. Openly gay since 1992 hence the PRIDE colours in this painting. You will also notice symbols on his lapels, the AIDS Ribbon to signify the founder of the Elton John AIDS Foundation to raise awareness of HIV aids.
One of the most popular musicians in history, with a dizzying array of records and awards, we all have our very own favourite(s) EJ song(s). Candle in the Wind, represented in this painting by a simple pink rose, was originally written in 1973 in honour of Marilyn Monroe, but in 1997, he preformed a rewritten version of the song as a tribute to his dear friend, Diana, Princess of Wales at her funeral.
“Elton John, Rocket Man” celebrates and honours a man as multi-faceted as his colourful wardrobe.
