Etching, 'Experienced Acquaintance' (Jimi Hendrix), by David Oxtoby, 1974

David Oxtoby (b. 1938) is a Yorkshire-born painter and print-maker who has devoted himself to the celebration of rock music and the commemorations of rock idols. He attended the Bradford Regional College of Art from 1950 to 1957 . Oxtoby has captured Elvis Presley, Jimi Hendrix, Bob Dylan, Elton John, Roger Daltrey, Stevie Wonder, and Mick Jagger to name but a few. Most of them painted from collections of photographs rather than from life. Oxtoby said "I try not to meet them, I don't want to spoil my image of them".

Jimi Hendrix was American musician, singer and songwriter. He is considered to be one of the greatest electric guitarist in the history of popular music, and one of the most influential musicians of the 20th century.
