‘Face the Music’ is a vibrant collection of hand painted portraits featuring local artist John D-C’s favourite iconic musicians from across the decades. These include: Muddy Waters, Chuck Berry, Bob Dylan, The Beatles, Led Zeppelin, Michael Jackson, Cyndi Lauper, Prince, Nirvana, Radiohead and many many more.
John describes his artistic style for this show as ‘electric, low brow, folk art portraits’. Each piece is hand painted on a flat timber block using a mix of flat matte acrylic and acrylic gouache paints to achieve a wonderfully vibrant and flat matte opaque colour palette.
