Description


One-of-a-kind trumpet created by renowned digital artist Laurence Gartel for the 2015 Newport Jazz Festival in honor of the legendary Miles Davis. This ‘Newport Jazz Festival Horn’ is a traditional metal trumpet wrapped in vinyl, prismatic material, and colored duct tape to create a unique piece of art. Gartel has also signed the inside of the bell in black felt tip, adding the date of 2015. The finished Newport horn was also translated into limited edition runs of t-shirts and prints. In fine condition. Considered the 'father of digital art,' the New York born-and-raised Gartel has worked in the digital medium for nearly forty years—preceding even the advent of the personal computer. Gartel taught Andy Warhol to use the Commodore Amiga in order to make a Debbie Harry album cover, and was friends with many of those in the NYC art scene. Gartel's work has been exhibited at the Museum of Modern Art, Long Beach Museum of Art, Princeton Art Museum, and Norton Museum of Art, and is also included in the permanent collections of the Smithsonian Institution’s Museum of American History, Bibliothque Nationale in Paris, and Victoria and Albert Museum in London. He was the official artist of the 57th Annual Grammy Awards, and created a massive Grammy statue wrapped in psychedelic vinyl that still resides at The Recording Academy.
