Artwork description:

The 27 Club refers to a fated number of musicians who died at the age of 27, often as a result of drug and alcohol abuse: Kurt Cobain, Amy Winehouse, Jim Morrison, Janis Joplin and many more.

Inspiration for these paintings comes from a tension between two extremes: unmanageable success and estrangement from normality.
The graphic poster-like quality of these portraits with their bold contrasts, express the ruthless exposure to the public eye, while the brashly bright and pastel-like acrylic colours convey a joyful sense of youth associated with deeper personal fragility.

A branded number 27 on all the canvases is the recurring sign of a mutual destiny.
