Dearly Beloved...

Reed Wilkerson

Being from Minneapolis, Minnesota; the tragic passing of the Purple One, Prince had a huge impact on the community and affected me personally. Devastated by the passing of a great local artist and hero I did the only thing I could do, I hit the shop and starting making things. The result were some pieces inspired by and dedicated to our funky hero Roger "Prince" Nelson.

After revealing my work on social media I was invited to take part in a art show named 57Princes as a part of the annual Art A Whirl in NE Minneapolis. The show featured works done by local artists in tribute to Prince. It was the very first Art show I had ever taken part in! Such an honor to share a wall with such talented artists.

Two more art shows coming up will be featuring my Prince works. Details soon!
