Lewis Nash Quilt

Created by Kisasi Ramsess

LA artist Kisasi Ramsess is known for his stunning work in multiple media  - from mosaic tiles, etchings and acrylic paint to stained glass and fabric. He is a master in the historically rich art form of quilting.

Ramsess is particularly drawn to the great jazz artists, creating large scale quilts of Louis Armstrong, Thelonious Monk, Billie Holiday and Oscar Peterson.  His piece depicting Lewis Nash is a fascinating study, with patterns reflecting rhythms and beats, and illustrative textures and vibrant colors to create an exquisite portrait.
