Wall of Sound Collage


My first music heroes, assembled in a collage.

Oil on canvas



This is a very personal piece of artwork. In my youth, I was never interested in the charts, and the only radio show I ever listened to was John Peel on Sunday afternoons. Music was my life and today it still holds a very important place in my life.

I wanted to put together a piece of art to highlight my first musical influences. – the musicians who inspired me – and here it is. 25 individual 12 x 12cms images of my heroes. I had no idea how it would turn out and when I assembled it, it made me smile and jump up in the air with joy.
