About

Kurt Cobain is best known as the frontman of the seminal Grunge band Nirvana. But at the height of his career, Cobain considered dropping out of the music industry to craft works of art and open a gallery. Apart from his music, Cobain was a prolific artist- painting, doodling, sculpting and manifesting his dark mind in a myriad of other ways. Since he could rarely afford canvas in his early days, he often painted on the back of board games. 

Since his death, Cobain's artwork has become highly sought-after, with some early drawings selling for tens of thousands of dollars. 

So far, an extremely small percentage of Cobain's art has surfaced. With your help, we hope to track down many more of Cobain's works, interview important people in his life - including family, friends and former art teachers - and help piece together an important but relatively unexamined part of his life. 

**THIS PROJECT CAN'T HAPPEN WITHOUT YOUR HELP**. Your pledge will help make this project a reality.
