Gather and see the music.
Vinyl Art is portraiture on vinyl records. Painted by hand with only white acrylic, the density of the paint creates the illusion of shading. The video embedded at the end shows a bit of my technique while painting the Lou Reed shown first below which was inspired by Warhol's Screen Test. I create these pieces to celebrate the object and the subject, to pay tribute to the cultural contribution of the music, and to spark conversation and questions.
Is that a REAL record? Is that ON the record? Is it done with a COMPUTER? Is it still PLAYABLE?
David Lynch, inspired by self portrait created for the Lynch Foundation
