New Elvis Harley Portrait From David Uhl

News from aritst David Uhl. Entering his tenth year as a licensed Harley-Davidson artist, David Uhl's body of work continues to capture the imagination of art lovers around the globe. His artwork is displayed throughout the world in museums and galleries and has also been sought by serious art collectors and celebrities alike. He has been featured on several television programs and has been referred to as "The Norman Rockwell of Harley-Davidson artists". David Uhl's latest work "In Tune" represents Elvis Presley kicked back, enjoying a glorious Memphis spring morning. This piece of work captures Elvis outside his new home Graceland, tuning his original Gibson J200,(before it's re-configuration). Behind him stands another embodied passion, the legendary 1957 Harley-Davidson® Panhead. Without a doubt he is experiencing first hand all the the early fruits of his impending mega success. This is the first depiction combining two of America's most important icons in one painting. Endorsed by both Harley-Davidson, Inc. and Elvis Presley Enterprises, the historical magnitude of this project suggests that a series of limited edition reproductions be created. In order to accommodate the immense potential interest generated by this image, the following edition specifications will be offered. ** Large edition: (24"x30") will number 350 with 50 artist proofs. $1850 framed. ** An exclusive oversized edition numbering 50 will be added, which duplicate the actual size of original (36"x46") along with 25 artist proofs. $4500 framed. All print editions will be reproduced in the finest quality giclee on canvas and arrive beautifully framed with seamless miter joints. The oversized edition will be outfitted with a special custom hand-gilded frame. All prints will also be hand signed and numbered and accompanied with a certificate of authenticity. A decorative brass plaque displayed on the front center of the piece will be inscribed with the name of the painting and release date. All prints will be sold through Graceland Harley-Davidson and be official licensed products of The Harley-Davidson Motor Company. The original is 36"x46", oil on linen and framed with a 2 piece composite hand-gilded moulding.

It´s funny, but it seems that only the true fans also understands what type of carisma Elvis had. This painting is a kliché image that only a "non fan" would like to portray. Elvis was 10 times more rock´n roll then all the other artists in Rolling stone magazine, but yet they put a stereotype kind of image on the front page of Elvis a couple of times there. It proves the editors actually dont understand what rock´n roll is. (honestly!) The thing about Elvis is that he was never "made up". He doesn´t need the anything to enhanse hia image in anyway. I was suprised that RCA/BMG actually understood this when only portraying his lips for the 30 #1 hits album.

Yep, it's pretty......but, it truly doesn't look that much like Elvis. However;....it has got to be impossible to try and portray...perfection.

The painting is not bad at all, if you get into that type of art; except for Elvis not looking very much like Elvis.
