Hendrix Guitar Pick Mosaic

In 2009, British artist Ed Chapman created a giant mosaic of Jimi Hendrix made using over 5,000 guitar picks. The piece was created for Cancer Research’s Sound & Vision fundraiser and was sold for £23,000 (US $37,352). The guitar pick mosaic marked a departure from Chapman’s usual style, as he typically uses ceramics to create portraits of notable celebrities. Check out all of Chapman’s work at his website.
