Hello all! I wanted to share two new pieces of art that I’ve created recently. It’s ironic that both pieces are inspired by music, which I love.
This abstract painting was inspired by a group that I heard a few years ago and fell in love with their music. Hypnotic Brass Ensemble is comprised of a group of brothers from Chicago who play horn. Their father is jazz artist Phil Cohran. Their music is infectious, lively, and soulful to the ears. Even my soon to be 3 year-old was dancing to their music. When I listened to their music before I began painting, I closed my eyes and envisioned flashes of color with every note. That’s how I came up with the artwork. Make sure to peep and listen to the video I’ve embedded so you all will get an idea why I love this group so much.
I wanted to do an abstract of Bob Marley for sometime now. I looked at a few images of him as a reference before I began creating this in Illustrator. I put a great deal of detail into this to show the passion of him singing. I wished I debuted this on what would have been is 68th birthday the 6th of this month, however, life got in the way. Overall, I love the outcome and colors.
What do you think of the artwork? Which one do you like out of the two? Comment below!
