Thomas Earl Petty (October 20, 1950 – October 2, 2017) was an American singer-songwriter, multi-instrumentalist, record producer, and actor. Petty served as the lead singer of Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers. He was also a member and co-founder of the late 1980s supergroup the Traveling Wilburys, and his early band Mudcrutch. Petty recorded a number of hit singles with the Heartbreakers and as a solo artist. In his career, he sold more than 80 million records worldwide, making him one of the best-selling music artists of all time. In 2002, Petty was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. He died, aged 66, of cardiac arrest on October 2, 2017. 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.
