Jimmy Hendrix Set On Fire by Phil Hansen

I'm one of Phil Hansen's fan and I do love and inspired by all of his creative arts since I firstly found him on YouTube doing his Bruce Lee High Speed Painting. He recently emailed me about his latest art work. The special things about Phil Hansen's Latest Artwork is he burned or destroyed them upon completion. This kind of method reminds me to the sand castles which I've made on the beach where I'll then bulldozed them after finish building the castles. The different is, I didn't take the video.

Jimmy Hendrix on fire
Zoomed Matchsticks

This art piece is called Jimmy Hendrix where he create a Jimmy Hendrix image by arranging colored match sticks. There is Red Tipped, Black Tipped and White Tipped Matchsticks and the size of the finished piece is 15" by 17". Check out this video for the full artwork in progress and then get burned.

Actually, Phil Hansen have started his new art blog called Goodbye Art and he will be posting different art pieces with different theme every week. That's why he created the Jimmy Hendrix piece and set it on fire for this week theme called 'Fire'. Hope you'll Enjoy them too.

I don't know, setting fire to his guitar onstage was a classic moment. I kind of see this as a tribute to Hendrix which is why I thought he might approve ;)
