Details

I have been trying to capture songs in my art lately. As a DJ, music has always been a creative outlet for me. Now that I am devoting my creative hours to art, I find myself still majorly influenced by music. This piece is inspired by Rufus Du Sol’s “Desert Night”. It is a calm, rolling track that parallels the rolling hillside contours in this piece. The song’s lovely bits of lightness and shine, are reflected in the gold. There is a depth in the song’s bass, painted by the black ink you see as the foundation.
