The Music Painter

I’m a fan of discovering interesting people by taking the time to look at the biographies of new followers on Twitter. You never know you might miss if you don’t keep an eye on things.

Kilford the music painter is one such man. As you’d imagine, this guy paints to music. He’s ‘performed’ live with Paul Weller, Deep Purple, Brian Eno and even The Charlatans.

An expressionist to the last, his style is frenetic and packed with energy. The photo above was taken during a Pendulum set at Sonisphere 2010 and he worked with DJ Ras Kwame at the MOBO Awards VIP Reception earlier this week.

He’s realised the power of sharing online too, giving back 15% of sales of his work to those who spread the love via Facebook and Twitter.

He curates a live music painting session at The Social on the third monday of every month if you want to get involved, but if you’d rather admire from afar, check out some of the sketches and prints in The Music Painter store.

    Hmmm.. I’m all for different forms of expression and some of the painted work is interesting but some of those sketches for £1000? Inspired by 50 Cent In da Club – Seriously £1000?

    I’m in the wrong game.

    No I’m not! It’s not music snobbery!
