Miles Davis and his [other] art.

Miles didn’t begin to draw and paint until he was in his mid-fifties, during the early 1980’s and a period of musical inactivity. Miles being Miles, he didn’t merely dabble, but made creating art as much a part of his life as making music in his final decade, resulting in a sharp, bold and masculine mixture of Kandinsky, Jean-Michel Basquiat, Picasso and African tribal art.
