Jasmine Murrell
James Brown
Mixed Media, Oil on Wood
24” x 48”

The artist centers James “Hey, Hey I Feel All Right” Brown as the subject of their painting. While painting, Murrell listened to “Please, Please, Please,” Poppa’s Got a Brand New Bag,” Hot Pants” and “Get Up Offa That Thang,” getting inspiration from the biography of James Brown. Murrell learned how Brown’s performance ideas were developed, and how Brown used his talent as a “voice of survival.”
