Vinyl painter pays homage to musical greats

Not all painters work on canvas: Daniel Edlen’s love of music led him to a special niche in the art world. See how Edlen creates realistic paintings of musicians – David Bowie, Amy Winehouse, Bob Marley and many more – directly on old vinyl records.

Because brushstrokes on vinyl would cause the paint to smear, Edlen creates his images with hundreds of dots of white paint. Today, Edlen is known around the world and his artwork hangs in the offices of VH1 and in galleries across the country. See more of Edlen’s art at www.vinylart.info.
