THIS IS MY DECEASED UNCLE'S ORIGINAL OIL ON TOP OF CANVAS PAINTING, PAINTED WHILE HE WAS SERVING TIME IN PRISON THE YEAR 1966 IN LOS ANGELES, THE IMAGE IS OF HIS CELLMATE FRANKIE AND TITLED "THE CHAIR", THE DIMENSIONS ARE 46" HIGH X 40" WIDE, THE PAINTING OVERALL IS IN PRETTY GOOD CONDITION, THERE ARE SEVERAL HOLES (6 OR 7) FROM NAILING IT TO THE WALLS AS WE MOVED FROM HOUSE TO HOUSE OVER THE YEARS, ALL THE HOLES ARE APPROXIMATELY 1 INCH TO THE EDGE OF THE WOOD FRAMING THE CANVAS WHICH WILL BE COVERED BY THE INITIAL DECORATIVE FRAMING. AT THIS TIME THERE IS NO (DECORATIVE) FRAME FOR THIS PAINTING. AS A CHILD LOOKING AT "FRANKIE" SEEMED A LITTLE WEIRD AT FIRST BUT QUICKLY TURNED APPEALING.
MY NAME IS TIMOTHY PEREZ (nephew, seller), THE ARTIST KIKO SANCHEZ OF THE PAINTING WAS MY MOTHER'S BROTHER, THE PAINTING WAS GIVEN TO ME WHEN I WAS TEN YEARS OLD IN 1967 AFTER I HAD TAKEN IT DOWN FROM THE RAFTERS OF MY PARENT'S GARAGE BECAUSE OF THE INTENSE HEAT, SINCE NO ONE ELSE EXPRESSED INTEREST IN IT MY UNCLE AWARDED OWNERSHIP TO ME WHEN HE SAW IT HANGING ON THE WALL OF MY BEDROOM AND HAS BEEN WITH ME THROUGH MY TRAVELS EVER SINCE.
HIS SERVING TIME IN PRISON WAS FROM A 3rd CONVICTION OF THE USE OF HEROIN WHICH WAS PROBABLY THE INFLUENCE BEHIND HIS STYLE OF PAINTING. EVERY TIME HE WOULD GET ARRESTED ALL THOSE AROUND HIM (his friends) WOULD PROCEED TO STEAL ALL HIS STUFF WHICH WOULD LEAD TO MY PARENTS SHOWING UP TO CONFISCATE EVERYTHING TO BRING HOME AND STORE FOR HIM, THUS LEADING FOR ME TO TALK ABOUT IT TODAY...
I AM ASKING $1500 U.S.D. CASH OR PAYPAL TO AVOID FRAUDULENT INQUIRIES PLUS PACKING AND SHIPPING, thank you for reading this far, tim ...
