Soul Rebel - Print portrait of Bob Marley
I grew up in Nigeria with Iconic tunes from this great man blaring through pretty much every transistor radio in every local kiosk on every corner. My brain still takes me back to particular places and times when I hear some of his songs. Bob Marley was and remains a legend to us Nigerians and especially to me because of his courage and his musicianship. I mean this man literally got shot at during a concert and went back to playing the very next one as if nothing happened. When asked why he’d risk his life, his response was simple. I’m paraphrasing here, but it went something like: “the people who are trying to make the world worse aren’t taking days off, so those of us trying to make the world better can’t either”. I mean damn dude… #respect. This is the second piece of work in the “Iconic AF” series.
These prints are reproductions of the original painting executed by myself and finished in 2018. They are made on Hahnemuhle PhotoRag Baryta Premium Luster Photo Paper and come in two sizes. It lies somewhere in between a gloss and matte finish, providing you with highly saturated, maximum ink coverage. Luster paper is also resistant to fingerprints, making it a popular choice for photographic prints. Each print has a 0.5" border on each side of the paper to allow for easier matting.

I don’t know where to start! Chuba is an amazing person who helped me with my order so much! From the first message he was always really fast to answer (regardless of the time difference)! I had issues with USPS and Chuba was always there, calling on my behalf, looking into different options, just trying to make sure that I get my gift! And the print... I did not expect it to be such a good quality! When you touch it it feels so expensive! I could not be happier and I will be shouting all over the social media about Chuba and his amazing team! I am so grateful for all your help! Wishing you a very merry Christmas and I hope new year brings you all the success you wish! Laura
Just love it. Framing guy was also quite impressed. The texture is something I can't explain, one-of-a-kind. Great piece.
I actually get to see Chuba in action while he paints this piece. I also get to see him as a musician, a brilliant scientist, a friend. He does every thing with such a passion, he is amazing in so many ways. My daughter words when she see the print; " Mom, where do you score this?" I flexed: I KNOW the artist! The print fills my room with more energy and makes me feel younger.
I received my Frida Khalo mug and it is beautiful! Makes my morning matcha oat milk lattes even more special :)
