Artwork Inspired by 21st Century Breakdown
Posted by Delfina

Green Day commissioned artist Logan Hicks to assemble a group of artists to create works of art based on each song from 21st Century Breakdown. The exhibition will travel with Green Day’s tour. The results are pretty amazing. It’s cool to see another artist’s interpretation of a given song, rendered as an image.

You can see photos of the artwork on Stencil History X, where there are also links to each artist’s website, and on One Big Freak Show, where you can read the press release. Larger pics of the Green Day portraits, by Logan Hicks, on Blackbooks.

Hicks says, “I chose artists whom I felt had a similar visual approach to art as Green Day does to its music. They embrace the same emotional rawness with their art, which speaks from the heart and swings with the fist.” Billie Joe is quoted as saying, “Seeing the pieces that our new album has inspired is very exciting. Many of the artists Logan has chosen show their work on the street, and we feel a strong connection to that type of creative expression.”

These are two of my favorites:

“Peacemaker” by M-City

“East Jesus Nowhere” by Chris Stain

Yeah I think that’s a really cool idea to get artists to interpert the songs, (even if it has been done by other artists)

I’m more of a visual person than I am musical, so I thought these were pretty cool. I’m glad you like them. :)
