Hendrix tribute mosaic in plectrums

A new portrait of guitar legend Jimi Hendrix - made from 4,000 Fender plectrums - will go on public display for the first time on Tuesday.

The mosaic was created by Manchester artist Ed Chapman who was commissioned by the guitar maker to mark the release of a new album of studio material by Hendrix, who died at the age of 27 in 1970.

The portrait, which measures 105 x 80cm, will be unveiled in London at the launch of the record, called People, Hell and Angels.

Mr Chapman said: "I was totally thrilled when I was called by Fender and asked to create my version of Jimi Hendrix's iconic image and it's a real honour.

"Jimi's sister. Janie L. Hendrix, will see it at the store and I'd love to hear her thoughts on the portrait.

"I usually work in ceramic tile, but plectrums are a great medium to create art and I hope they are a fitting tribute to an amazing musician."

Mr Chapman has been noted in the art world for his recognisable style which pushes the boundaries of mosaic work.

He has also created portraits made from coins, glass, mobile phones and even sugar cubes which have been sold and displayed around the world.

The Hendrix portrait will be on display at a Hendrix pop-up store in Ganton Street, West London.
