More than one string to their bow

More than one string to their bow

Painting by Brandon Boyd

I haven’t been to a music festival in a while. In fact, my ticket to Future Music is proudly stuck on my fridge, acknowledging my return to contemporary tunes (from my usual 80s playlist).

What I love about music, is how often it goes hand in hand with visual art. Brandon Boyd, the lead singer of Incubus, is one such artist exploring the many avenues of creativity. He is an artist in his own right, producing large and small scale paintings that explore the similar themes in music – love, loss, anger, fear… You can check out his website here.

Other worthy artists of note are Viggo Mortensen, Jane Seymour and Dennis Hopper. Dennis Hopper was actually an artist and photographer before he was an actor. You can see some of Dennis Hopper’s photography here.

Although some people seem to have multiple creative talents, I think I’ll still leave the windows of my car up when I’m singing my favourite tunes.

Yours in paint and lyric,
