Vinyl Art - Painted Portraits Of Musicians & Entertainers On Records By Daniel Edlen

NOTE: You are on an old site. Find this and all new posts here

Arizona based artist Daniel Edlen paints portraits of musicians and entertainers with white acrylic on good old fashioned vinyl LPs.

A life long lover of music, he began selling them in late 2006 when a friend spotted them in his studio and suggested he offer them as holiday gifts. Since then, Daniel has been showing in galleries and selling them online.

Below are 24 of Daniel's works presently hanging in VH1's corporate offices in New York:

I commissioned 2 pieces by Daniel and could not be happier. The second is of Nick Lowe, featuring a photo I shot of Nick at a concert in 1978. That personal touch made it just that much more valuable and worthwhile.

See the exhibit and buy some art!

C'mon people, it's only a dollar.
