Gold: Todd DiCircio

7 - 21 May 2011 Gallery Exhibitions

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.

 

Todd DiCiurcio has quickly made his mark on the New York art scene with his dynamic portraits of the city’s hottest music talent. In his first UK solo show entitled Gold, DiCiurcio will present 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 York’s diverse music scene to the Cob Gallery.

 

DiCiurcio’s 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 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.
