About this project

Studio Space is vital to the creative process
Studio Space is vital to the creative process

Each BioCollage tells a story. The multi-layered process adds dimension by allowing each image to read a number of ways. BioCollage is about telling stories with paint:

Included in the 27 Club series is Amy Winehouse, Kurt Cobain, Jimi Hendrix, Jim Morrison, Janis Joplin, Jean-Michael Basquiat and Brian Jones.

Here are the three paintings of the series that I've completed thus far. The reward posters, postcards and prints on canvas images will all look like this:

Some close up shots of the individual panels:

This is the middle panel of the Kurt Cobain piece.

This is the 4th panel of the Jimi Hendrix painting.  This is an iconic moment in history when he set fire to his guitar on stage.

Here we have the 7th panel of the Amy Wineouse painting.  She made a pulic appearance wearing a bright yellow dress, showcasing her tattoos, at the peak of her career.

In 12 months I plan to have the 27 Club series finished and participating in international exhibitions.

Eventually, BioCollage will mobilize other artists to participate in large scale collaborative pieces.  These pieces are intended for auctions and public installations.

This is where it all begins!

Risks and challenges

There are always risks when it comes to selling artwork. Having too much or too little demand requires a balance of all operations and most of all remaining open minded. I've learned that there is a market for any type of art, it is just a matter of finding the right venue. If obstacles arise then I will find new ways of connecting with the right community. The silver lining between fine art and commercial success lies within the golden heart. I never forget that at the root of every culture is art!
