Velvis belongs in a class of art by itself. Similar categories would include, but is not limited to, assembly line rug/beach towel prints and paintings of heavy metal rock stars and jungle
animals. Generally, you'll find these items
for sale at flea markets, yard sales and high volume
intersections (in gas station parking lots), in the urban sprawl. This genre
should not be confused with
collections of plastic flamingos and anything
to do with Dale
Earnhart, although in most cases, they
are sold side by side.
Velvis is a velvet painting of Elvis.
Floyd traveled around the country, including
in the ghetto, searching for Velvis paintings
to add to his art collection.
