Ed Chapman Mosaics
The mosaic work which is 105x70cm is made entirely from smashed up vinyl records and is part of the series of such art works Ed is producing of musicians.
Ed says, 'I love the technique employed, hundreds of overlaid pieces making a recognisable image of a global icon.'
'I have always admired the incongruous colours used in portraits by such as Lucian Freud and Jenny Saville and I hope to emulate this in vinyl.'
