Art and music is intertwined. Its an undefined sense of expression that carries meaning and relativity of certain issues and subjects we’re familiar with. Shepard Fairey is notorious when it comes to expression and ideology. He recently awed spectators at his exhibition under the name of Harmony and Discord. As of now, it has been stated that a project is under the way with a collaboration of musician Neil Young. Shepard had the honor to design Neil’s album cover along with eleven different pieces that represent the songs. The album is an interpreted version of classical all American folk tunes.
The process was unique as to how the collaboration came about. Shepard would listen to melodies while depicting the lyrics with meanings. He would then form sketches for every song and discuss them with Neil. After deliberation and a harmonious understanding, Shepard would then depict the message through interpretive imagery with Neil’s influence combined.
The showcase will be an eyeopener for sure with tremendous amounts of detail and symbolism. It has been stated that this exhibit will be available to the general public at the Perry Rubenstein Gallery located in Los Angeles, CA from the start of June 28th and end on the 14th of July.
