Former MEGADETH drummer Nick Menza will unveil an art collection crafted from the new medium of “rhythm-on-canvas” on June 16.
Menza has been working with art team and publisher SceneFour on the collection titled “Rhythm Hits The Wall”.
Says Menza: “Totally rad that my artwork is finally going to be released. Only a hundred are in the edition (all signed and numbered).”
SceneFour is the team responsible for the “Rhythm-On-Canvas” medium, having released blockbuster art collections over the last five years with a highly select group of drumming legends, including Bill Ward (BLACK SABBATH) , Rick Allen (DEF LEPPARD), Mickey Hart (GRATEFUL DEAD), Jose Pasillas (INCUBUS), Dave Lombardo (SLAYER) and Frankie Banali (QUIET RIOT).
The process of creating artwork from rhythm is an extensive one that begins with the drummer utilizing a bevy of drumsticks that light in a variety of ways similar to that of a painter utilizing brushes with different colors. In the creation process, the drummer is crafting rhythms that translate visually to abstract imagery before they are brought into the SceneFour studio, manipulated meticulously, and laid to canvas.
