Portraits The 27 Club


Janis Lyn Joplin was an American rock, soul and blues singer-songwriter, and one of the most successful and widely known rock stars of her era, breaking new ground for women in rock music!  Along with the success of releasing three albums however, she lived a long struggle with substance abuse. Janis died from an accidental heroin overdose at the age of 27 in 1970.

Janis was a rebel. A woman who got flack both before and during her fame for breaking the conventional norms with her style of dress, social behavior and her music. With this, she broke barriers and was a part of a huge cultural shift in the 1960s.

This radiant portrait of Janis is truly one-of-a-kind as it is kissed onto a sculptural number 27. This piece projects 4″ out from the wall and serves as a bold, contemporary statement piece for your space!

The 27 Club

Inspired by phenomenon of the great legends that took their lives to substance abuse and suicide at the budding age of only 27, Lex has collaborated closely with her husband, Josh to create this impactful sculptural collection. Despite the astonishing talent that each of these artists possessed, there was a lack of self-love and self worth which ultimately brought each of these individuals to their early demise.

It only made sense to Lex and Josh to create these idolized faces with kisses of love, remembrance, and empathy and place the artwork on a surface that takes the form of the number 27.

It serves as a reminder to hold on another day, to treat your soul and body with love and respect, and to gift yourself more time to be great at life!

To name a few, this collection is in memory of you:
Amy Winehouse
Janice Joplin
Jimmy Hendrix
Jim Morrison
Kurt Cobain
Brian Jones
