Internationally acclaimed artist Todd DiCiurcio celebrates the best of the New York music scene in his dynamic new series featuring the likes of Kings of Leon, Adam Green and The English Beat.
American artist Todd DiCiurcio has quickly made his mark on the New York art scene with his dynamic portraits of the citys hottest music talent. In his first UK solo show entitled Gold, DiCiurcio presents a new series of large scale paintings of the likes of Kings of Leon, Adam Green, EXITMUSIC, Broken Social Scene, Guided by Voices, Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros, Bob Mould, The English Beat and Guster, bringing the best of New Yorks diverse music scene to Cob Gallery
, Camden Town.
DiCiurcios unique artistic process ensures he captures the spirit and energy of each of the musicians he paints. Each painting originates from a live sketch vigorously drawn as the musician performs, their unique stage presence and live energy documented as the performance unfolds, later transferred to a large-scale canvas in his studio.
For this exhibition, running 7th 21st May, DiCiurcio combines a metallic gold base with the printing of his original live drawings in black enamel, hand-finishing each canvas with a coating of diamond dust to create a stunning and beautiful effect on the dramatic 45 x 59 paintings.
Camden has a long established heritage at the heart of the UKs live music scene, making it the perfect location for DiCiurcio to present his work. An accompanying series of events includes live painting and gig performances, to be announced closer to the exhibition. DiCiurcio has also designed a limited-edition series of t-shirts which are sold at the Gallery.
