Oil Painting Cover Art for Modal Soul music CD by Nujabes by David Verba Copyright 2012 Unfortunately I did not get a chance to personally meet Nujabes. He did come to an exhibit I was having at the Delight Hamilton Gallery in Seattle and bought two paintings of mine and asked permission to use them on his CD covers. One was used for this CD cover and the other never had a chance to be used because Nujabes was killed soon after buying the artwork in a tragic car accident. I heard later that the second and larger painting was hung in his studio.
