The Painter

Painter: Dustin Shane

Dustin is my co-worker and he is an extremely talented young artist in San Francisco Ballet.

One day we started talking and he told me that he has synesthesia. I was so intrigued that I wanted to know more about synesthesia. After researching I found out that he can see music in many different colors and shapes. So I asked Dustin would he be able to paint this music and he said that yes probably, but he had never tried.

Below is our first tryout of Dustin's music painting.

Enjoy.

To really appreciate Dustin's work take a look at the picture above. Here is a picture of Arvo Part's music "Fratres". Listen to it on Itunes and I hope that you have the same experience as Dustin.

I am so grateful to have Dustin be a part of this project. He will paint live at the de Young on the 12th of October.
