Page asked artist Jon Ellinor , 25, of Burstellars to do the painting of the legendary rock group after Annie Hollinshead of the ABC Trust spotted some of his other artwork. The painting will be featured at a month long exhibition at Knebworth House in Hertfordshire celebrating the band’s 40th anniversary.
Ellinor graduated from Anglia Ruskin University in Cambridge, and recently opened his studio in Wyton. “Apparently Jimmy Page liked the painting and he is very fussy about what he signs and what he doesn’t”, he stated.
Action for Brazil’s Children (ABC) works with children who suffer from extreme poverty, exposure to violence, drug addiction and with little access to education. They are committed to providing essential shelter, food, education and inspiring change.
To see Jon Ellinor’s artwork, visit him at www.aktiv-portraits.co.uk. You can also enter a contest to win the painting by visiting the website www.memoriesinmusic.com.
