Sam Gant Painting FLY SEE FLYING

$6,500

About

Sam Gant (1955-2000) was an African-American painter in the SF Bay area who became known despite his disabilities being deaf and mute. This is a large painting on unstretched canvas of an enormous blue elephant that fills the canvas. Overlaid are bits of speech or mimicing sounds as he interpreted or remembered. There is always an improvisational quality to his best work. Most notable are the large words at the bottom, Fly See Flying.
