some more WIP
I started this sketch with the intention to do something else, but then it developed a life of its own and went in this direction ….
‘Heart shaped coffin’ is the original title of this video http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UThKn_TmfmM that Cobain almost entirely designed.
‘Heart shaped box’ apparently recalls a box Curt’s wife gave him at the beginning of their relationship.
When i saw it again after many years I had the disturbing feeling of a death premonition or awareness.
This video inspired my painting, together with the controversies around his death modality.
A huge thanks to Ricky Russo for helping me discover the story of Nirvana, a music band i grew up with and whose music i always loved but i never really understood.
