ROCK 'N' ROLL
Jimi Hendrix once said,
‘You have to give people something to dream on’.
I paint to remind people to be free,
to live their dreams.
This collection is centred around Rock ‘n’ Roll culture. I focus on portraits of characters that have shaped society. Music culture especially fascinates me as it is an obtainable art form that touches everybody. It has a loud voice that can disrupt society, inspire free thinking and break the system, influencing daily life, fashion, attitudes and language.
I take my main inspiration from musicians that have made a mark on society, whose music has penetrated our souls with their sound. It is a sound that has the ability to take us to the brink of ecstasy or suicide, a sound that screams for the human soul to look at its true nature, touching the darkest and brightest emotions. It is this fundamental quality that I bring to my canvas.
