BioCollage is a concept that I created to tell stores with paint.  “Bio” is short for biography and “Collage” is a collection of anecdotes, which make up the portrait.  BioCollage tells the story of a person in a series of smaller paintings.  Each panel represents a chapter in the evolution and in completion, the portrait is seen when viewing them as a whole.  The scenes chosen are a hybrid of factual events and characteristic observation.  BioCollage paintings are meant to glorify and highlight positive and provocative moments in the metamorphosis of life. 

Amy Winehouse

Amy Winehouse is a member of the 27 club. I have decided to paint her in honor and memory of her devastating death. In each canvas I decided to show a visual timeline of her life going horizontal. As you can see the first canvas is when she was just a little girl, and each canvas progresses along her life and fame. In each canvas i have decided to make up her image in the background as you can see.  I hope you enjoy.

Kurt Cobain

Kurt Cobain was also a member of the 27 club. He was one of the most well known rock and roll artist of all time. Due to his very sad death and him being a member of the 27 club, I decided to paint him. I made a visual timeline of each canvas going in a horizontal order. The first canvas s a picture of him as a young child and his family. And as you follow the timeline it goes from him progressing in his fame to a full blown star. Each canvas makes up his picture in the background. I hope you enjoy.

Jimi Hendrix

Jimi Hendrix is also a member of the 27 club. He was a very talented artist and was and will remain to be very famous and one of the greatest guitarists of all time. Due to him passing away at such a young age I have decided to honor him by painting him. A visual timeline from the point of him being a baby to the point of him dying is all within the nine canvases. I have done so in a horizontal order with each canvas making up his face. I hope you enjoy
