Concepts: Byzantine icons, Norse mythology, battle metal
Stage backdrop design for a battle metal band TURISAS from Finland.
The band have made songs based on Byzantine (Eastern Roman) Empire, Varangian Guard (Scandinavian mercenaries hired by Byzantine Emperors), and Norse mythology. And Byzantine Empire is very involved with Christianity and icons.
So this work was what I design an icons-looking backdrop totally based on the elements of the band, their songs and their requests. In other words, it's 'Turisas-style ICONS'.
