The After Midnight Series by visual artist Steven Lopez has featured musicians such as Aretha Franklin, Chaka Khan, Minnie Riperton, India.Arie, Sade, Jill Scott and more. Lopez works by selecting a favorite song, then he begins the painting process in front of a live audience. Above is a time-lapse video of his process in his studio.
In this episode of the series, he paints to Erykah Badu‘s “Amerykahn Promise” off of New Amerykah Part One: Fourth World War. To celebrate Part Two, Steven Lopez is offering an autographed print poster to the most deserving Badu fan. To prove yourself, send a love letter to firstname.lastname@example.org explaining why you love Erykah Badu and this painting, describing your personal interpretations, the reasons why you love mixed-media, or maybe just why this rare artwork is rightfully yours.
Contest ends April 25th. The Giclee´ print is 30″ x 40″. Good luck! A message from Erykah:
