To commemorate his 30-year anniversary in music, guitar legend George Lynch (DOKKEN, LYNCH MOB) is releasing a series of 200 fine art original canvases. An anniversary self-portrait utilizing mixed media (photography, acrylic, ink on canvas), each piece measures 40 inches by 30 inches.
Lynch began working on the series in May of 2008 with notorious creativity house SceneFour in Los Angeles. SceneFour has played instrumental roles in design for MARILYN MANSON, BECK, NINE INCH NAILS and MTV.
All 200 Lynch canvases combine the pin-hole photography of Evan Stone (HENRY ROLLINS, JOHNNY ROTTEN, BEASTIE BOYS) with Lynch's original handprints set onto the piece using acrylic paint. Each handprint is uniquely designed by the iconic guitarist.
"Some are tiger-striped like the Bengal guitar he's made famous," says SceneFour creative director Cory Danziger. "Some are really vibrant, and others are just bizarrely beautiful. Lynch is creatively brilliant, and the canvases reflect that."
Lynch fans and art collectors can learn more and reserve their canvas (numbers 1-100) at www.legacyoften.com. Canvas ship dates begin in December.
