Overlay art - music artwork using photographs of musicians and musiclal instruments.

I use an overlay technique to represent a different vantage point on music, one that merges multiple instances of the same musician or instrument, incorporating the element of time. The images seem to find the average, mean, or essence of the subject, by emphasizing only the repetitive elements. Using more than 30 layers in each image, I aim to capture an icon in the way people's memory works - a conglomeration of various fleeting images recalled as one. An anchor in each image is reinforced with every layer. The resulting superimpositions display a different way of viewing musicians, one that incorporates the element of time and motion to create music artwork.

I have created various pieces of music artwork, music wall art, music art prints, music posters, music themed art, all for sale by the artist, Steve Socha, from Toronto Canada.  Many of these are a portrait of a musician, some that I admire, others that are icons of pop culture.  Some musician portraits are made of dead musicians, to make music prints for sale that are commemorative.  Some of the pieces are musical instrument art.  I have been a musician since I was 7 years old.  I started taking guitar lessons and practicing every day.  At 17, I started to teach guitar at the Niagara Conservatory of Music.  Since my beginnings in music, I have also learned to play the piano, drums, bass, violin, ukulele, and harmonica.  If you don't see an instrument here that you would like an art piece made of in the overlay style, let me know and I will create it.
