John Lennon was born in England in 1940. He was an English singer, songwriter, and peace activist who gained worldwide fame as the founder, co-lead vocalist, and rhythm guitarist of the Beatles. In 1956, he formed his first band, the Quarrymen, which evolved into the Beatles in 1960. He was initially the group’s de facto leader, a role gradually ceded to McCartney.
His songwriting partnership with Paul McCartney remains the most successful in musical history. In 1969, he started the Plastic Ono Band with his second wife, Yoko Ono. After the Beatles disbanded in 1970, Lennon continued as a solo artist and as Ono’s collaborator.
Lennon was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame twice, as a member of the Beatles in 1988 and as a solo artist in 1994.
“Music Legends” is a series of paintings. The process starts with a 33LP vinyl record, which is melted, stretched and molded to compliment the specific artist. The record is then painted to reflect the energy and feeling of that particular artist. The record is mounted on a 15” by 15” panel which is painted to compliment the record.
