Music Art Gallery

Music Is Art

Music Art Gallery.. is art inspired by the bands and musicians that I love. The latest group included in the Music Art Series is a band called Royal Thunder. I created a grouping for the band Tester a few weeks ago and they really liked the work so I’ve ventured beyond Tester to make some cool stuff for Royal Thunder. I met the band last night and saw their CVI show and wow I have enough inspiration to make a crazy amount of art that will hopefully equal their sound. I’ve also added some pieces I did for Blind Melon and Abandon Jalopy. Brad Smith and Chris Shinn both loved the work so I plan on making more. Check the rest of the Music is Art series, Tegan and Sara, Veruca Salt, Pink Floyd. Hope you dig.

Finding new music is one of my favorite things about life so far. Soul, rhythm and blues, jazz were some of my first loves. I added some new genres in the early 90’s and was glad I did, I loved the music of that era, still do. Alice in Chains, Nirvana, anything with distorted electric guitars and lyrical geniuses at the helm. These days I go for anything that is done not just well but with perfection. The art, for me, is in the writing, learning, practicing and the letting it rip live. I dig the whole story, the part when only their mothers knew how great they were to the part where they are the definition of music. It takes a lifetime to create a complete artist, the road is the journey and the journey is unending. Any band or performer who goes to the length required for perfection of their art has my respect. That any other can express exactly how I feel is a miracle yet done everyday. Gotta love that too.

Music has inspired art and art has inspired music for as long as there have been both, music and art sitting in a tree..  2012 has been a great year for music and being inspired by music when making art is easy for me, I’ll be taking advantage of that by creating the sh*t out of some art with loud and proud music that I love playing in the foreground. I hope you can see my journey and respect my view-point. I will do my best to learn and grow as a person and artist while hoping that I succeed at perfection.
