To honor the release of "Back To Black", the Amy Winehouse biopic Ronin is proud to announce our first release, featuring a collaboration between San Jose handprint artist Russell Powell and world-renowned photojournalist David Howells. David, known more for his powerful photographs than his own recognition, captured a subtle yet striking portrait of Amy Winehouse at the SXSW Festivalin Austin, Texas. This image has become one of the most iconic representations of the late star. Inspired by David's work, Russell Powell has created his own handprint interpretation of the photograph with his incredible technique of painting the image first on his palm and then pressing it on to canvas.

This unique collaboration is available as a physical one-of-a-kind piece, accompanied by 100 digital versions of the artists' respective works. A once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to own a piece of music history. This unique collaboration goes to the heart of Ronin's mandate to create and celebrate the works of our creators.

Amy Winehouse at SXSW, Austin, TX - March 15, 2007, one hour before David Howell's photo shoot.
