Artist: Michael Butler
Original Painting: Oil on Canvas
Original Size: 48" x 30"
The very first oil painting done by Michael Butler. He decided the concept for his first oil painting would be Kurt Cobain simply because he is his favorite rock star.
This painting was inspired by memories of seeing Nirvana in concert while in college. The accent colored red fingernail polish is wearing off, referencing life wearing down even back then.
Kurt Donald Cobain (February 20, 1967 – April 5, 1994) was an American singer-songwriter and musician, best known as the guitarist, primary songwriter and frontman of the rock band Nirvana. Through his angst-fueled songwriting and anti-establishment persona, Cobain's compositions widened the thematic conventions of mainstream rock music. He was often heralded as a spokesman of Generation X and is considered to be one of the most influential musicians in the history of alternative rock.
