Short BIO of DB Artworks, -- My brother Vince was much more to Jerry than just his Art Publisher. They were also very close friends. Phil Lesh acknowledged his gratitude for how well my brother and his family cared for Jerry in his book " Searching for the Sound".. Vince and his family occasionally lived with Jerry over the years.
We experimented with different archival papers in different print runs, producing some very high-end pieces in Japan, using Toppan. >> I hope this sheds some light on where these prints were made and by whom and why they are truly authentic, having come directly from my personal collection. They have my provenance as the ART PUBLISHER..Pictures of me with Jerry 1- Marin after dinner 2- hanging out discussing our Japanese art tour. 3- on the deck of his Tiburon condo. My price are kept low because I want many of you to be able to afford to own something that Jerry loved and created himself during his lifetime.
>>Thank You >> David Dibiase >> Former Vice President >> DB Artworks. All these pieces listed here were personally approved by Jerry himself and we're not reproduced after his death.
A great way to celebrate one of the kindest most creative and fascinating human beings you could ever meet. This artwork is a press proof.
Garcia totally gets into saddam's head in this portrait. Jerry looked at people in situations and allowed his imagination and intuition to take it from there. Mixing humor, whimsy, and a touch of sobering reality, Garcia covers a lot of psychological ground in this very popular portrait. The narration, written in his hand on the signed plate is an extra treat not usually seen in Jerry's artistic creation.. This is from my private collection and is a rare archival quality print, using Reeves paper.
It was one of the ultra rare experimental press proofs we created as Jerry's publisher, DB artworks. It was created during Jerry's lifetime, and published by D B Artworks. Jerry personally supervised and approved the final proofs before he would allow the printing of this image. Jerry was very exacting and demanded that the colors of his original paintings be faithfully represented before he gave his final approval for the Limited edition prints to be published. This piece is from the original printing run of this image, a lifetime print, plate signed, in its pure unaltered state meeting the high standards Jerry Garcia demanded for his published artwork.
This is a very RARE piece and a " must have " for any serious collector of Jerry Garcia's art. This piece inspired endless speculation as to what Jerry's intent was when he created it.From the erotic to the whimsical. The actual print is 14 and 7/8 by 9 & 7/8,, the image is 9 1/4 by 5 5/8 in.
