There is no doubt that the jazz movement has not only transformed the music world, but has also enhanced the work of other artists." - Thomas Cale, Artist

Thomas Cale, artist, of Rhinebeck, New York, has announced plans to unveil his latest project, a series of paintings dedicated to iconic figures who have brought jazz music to the masses through the years. The show is inspired by greats like Sonny Rollins and Charlie Parker, among others, and even includes some of the everyday faces of non-celebrity musicians who share their love for the genre by bringing music to the streets.

Several dozen paintings that have been developed by Cale, mostly with oil and pastel mediums, are expected to be included in a show set to open in 2014 in New York. The venue and details will be announced at a later date.

“There is no doubt that the jazz movement has not only transformed the music world, but has also enhanced the work of all kinds of artists – writers, painters, sculptors, and a variety of others - who are inspired by jazz as they embark upon their work. And, of course, the influence extends so far beyond all of that; most everyone enjoys the layers of jazz as they live out their lives with the music as a backdrop in their car, home, or office,” stated Thomas Cale, artist.

Cale has long used modern color schemes and broad brush strokes to capture the energy of faces and figures. Some of his most recent shows included “Village People,” “God and War,” and “Celebrity Mugshots,” all of which showcased his unique ability to bring people to life on canvas. He also customizes guitars with images and faux finishes.

“For me personally, jazz music really fosters the creative process; I want to somehow bring it to life by giving people a visual experience to go along with the music,” said Cale.
