Forever 27

John Krout's avatar John Krout

This piece was created to honor just a few of the iconic musical artists that died at the premature age of 27. Kurt Cobain, Janis Joplin, Jim Morrison, Brian Jones, and Jimi Hendrix as the focal point, are the artists represented in the painting. Music plays such a large part in my own personal creative process as well as greatly influencing my outlook in everyday life. Visual and audible art both can completely alter mood, evoke deep though, or simply provide a temporary release to escape the pressures and stress of life.
