Amy Jade Winehouse (14 September 1983 – 23 July 2011) was an English singer and songwriter. She was known for her deep, expressive contralto vocals and her eclectic mix of musical genres, including soul (sometimes labelled as blue-eyed soul and neo soul), rhythm and blues, and jazz. Winehouse's debut album, Frank (2003), was a critical success in the UK and was nominated for the Mercury Prize. Her follow-up album, Back to Black (2006), led to five 2008 Grammy Awards, tying the then record for the most wins by a female artist in a single night, and made her the first British woman to win five Grammys, including three of the General Field "Big Four" Grammy Awards: Best New Artist, Record of the Year and Song of the Year.

Winehouse won three Ivor Novello Awards: in 2004, Best Contemporary Song for "Stronger Than Me"; in 2007, Best Contemporary Song again, this time for "Rehab"; and in 2008, Best Song Musically and Lyrically for "Love Is a Losing Game." She also won the 2007 Brit Award for Best British Female Artist, having been nominated for Best British Album, with Back to Black.

Winehouse died of alcohol poisoning on 23 July 2011, aged 27. Her album Back to Black posthumously became, for a time, the UK's best-selling album of the 21st century.

Jack Graves is an American artist, born in 1988 in Jacksonville, Florida. From and early age Jack has developed a talent for creating unique and original works of art. Winning departmental awards during his early primary education, and while studying at home and abroad at Hampden-Sydney College in Virginia and at Newcastle University in England.

Over the past several years Jack has been painting professionally, developing a wide audience and base of collectors worldwide. In 2014 he was recognized by the critical review, “Internationale KUNST HEUTTE”. Today his paintings are featured in numerous galleries, on “1st dibs” and “The Highboy”, two international digital fine art platforms, as well as his own website.

Jack describes his art style as “Eclecticism”, “a work that juxtaposes two or more different art styles, one from the past and new ones I develop for the future.”

This approach has evolved, culminating in a completely new series of paintings he calls the “Icon Series”. In this series he incorporates an idealized, almost photo-realistic face of an international super-star model or celebrity, an “Icon”, within a matrix of an otherwise totally abstract expressionist composition, which makes the iconic image dazzle.

The new “Icon Series” has been met with tremendous success with designers, galleries and fine art collectors from Hong Kong to Manhattan, selling over 40 works in a matter of months of its debut.
