Former SLAYER Drummer DAVE LOMBARDO Schedules First New York Exhibit Of His 'Rhythm On Canvas' Collection
July 17, 2015
On August 2, former SLAYER and current PHILM drummer Dave Lombardo will debut his collection of rhythm-on-canvas art for the first time on the East Coast with an in-person appearance. Join Dave for the opening reception at Art On A Gallery on August 2 between 8 p.m. and 10:00 p.m. as he will be discussing all 12 pieces in his collection with the public.
As the founding drummer of SLAYER and the current drummer in PHILM and FANTÔMAS , Dave Lombardo is responsible for some of music's most acclaimed rhythms. With his art debut "Rhythm Mysterium", Lombardo crafted the visuals in the collections through drum performance. Working with art team SceneFour, Lombardo utilized drumsticks that light much like a painter uses brushes with oil. An extensive process from start to finish, Lombardo's rhythms are captured and brought to canvas in a highly vivid and abstract way.
"Rhythm on canvas" is a new medium in art — a movement led by the world's greatest drummers, started at SceneFour, a visual art team based in downtown Los Angeles. Through their signature collaborative art approach, they work with notable visionaries outside of the fine art world to collectively create original art projects. At the conclusion of the creation process with featured collaborative guest, an original art collection is born and released worldwide.
Art On A Gallery specializes in works by independent, alternative artists, often with a connection to the music scene and is proud to be the first East Coast gallery to display Dave Lombardo's collection. An independent art space operating since 2010 in New York City's historic East Village, Art On A Gallery is run by Wendigo Productions NY,a concert and live event promotion company organizing and promoting regular calendar of shows of every genre: rock, punk, metal, ska, with the most prominent bands in the New York City scene. Art On A Gallery grew as a logical extension of Wendigo Productions NY's connection to the local music scene and its mission to support the local arts and music community, creating opportunities for musicians, artists, designers and performers of all varieties.
The collection will be on display August 2 through September 6.
