A young Banbury-based illustrator’s drawing of Amy Winehouse has been selected to be part of the Amy Winehouse Foundation’s exhibition For You I Was a Flame in London.
Jason Kattenhorn, also known as Black Eyed Jack, who went to Banbury School and Sixth Form, will have a print of his drawing on show at the exhibition at Proud Galleries in Camden from today (Thursday) until October 6. At one time she was hounded by the press, but Amy Winehouse did not always have an uneasy relationship with the camera.The display in Amy’s home London borough aims to show the beautiful side of the singer’s life and work and will also feature photographs taken from across her career as a Grammy-winning soul star.
Two years after the singer’s death, the exhibition will commemorate what would have been Amy’s 30th birthday this Saturday and is an exclusive opportunity to view unseen artwork and photography by an array of artists.
All money made from the show will go towards the foundation, which works to prevent the effects of drug and alcohol misuse on young people.
