I Use Musical Instruments As Canvases For My Painted Creations

I take a violin or guitar from a sand-papered, worn-out or simply unable to produce sound and I turn it into a canvas for my thoughts and ideas. Starry skies, whales, waves or simply abstract, I use tester emulsion paint pots for the main colour and acrylics and watercolours for the finer details and imagery.

Each piece takes me roughly 2-3 days to complete, 1 tub of ice cream for support and an old pair of trousers to wipe the paintbrush on.

While the violin I created is virtually impossible to play, both classical guitars and their sounds have been unaltered in the process and with some good strings and tuning, are completely playable.
