freddie mercury poster

 

I was inspired to paint this Freddie Mercury poster up, after an afternoon listening to some of Queen albums. This man was not only an incredible singer, but just a brilliant entertainer who obviously threw everything he had into his performances. I tried to use colours that, for me, evoked the feeling of the music, energetic and overblown. I felt like putting the distant stage light in there, behind thick atmospheric smoke, would evoke the operatic scope of Queen’s music.
