I’m digging these portraits of iconic musicians made from reclaimed vinyl records.
Los Angeles based artists Kaylee Carrington and Donny Phillips created these create unique and collectable works of art.
You can purchase the portraits from Music Heads Etsy shop for $49.99 or £32.20. My favourite is Morrissey – The Smiths.
I was working in the garage a while back and a song in the background got stuck in my head. On one of the highest shelves, there was a collection of “broken records” in in a sad, dusty pile because they could no longer be played and I knew what had to be done…
If a song is going to get stuck in my head, I want it to be a good song. What better way to be reminded of that song than to stare at Joe Strummer’s face on vinyl every time I walk into my living room?
The two things I love most are music and visual arts and I can’t imagine one without the other. My aim is to redefine the notion of the broken record. Reclaimed- restored- converted- call it what you will, music simply can’t be broken or tossed away.
