Not everyone knows it, but Monty Colvin, Galactic Cowboys bassist/singer/songwriter-turned podcaster, is also a crazy-talented artist. His work graces the covers and liner notes of several Galactic Cowboys albums and has appeared in the pages of popular magazines. Some of his larger-scale painting includes mural pieces. The Kansas City branch of the School of Rock was so impressed with Monty’s talent that they gave him free rein to adorn the school’s walls with murals of iconic music-related art. Here’s the result of his efforts.
If you like Monty’s work, he has paintings for sale on his website, or you can commission him for a custom portrait or painting.
Pink Floyd released their tenth studio album Animals in the US, where it reached No.3 in the charts. The album’s cover image, a pig floating between two chimneys on Battersea Power Station, was conceived by bassist Roger Waters and realised by long-time design and photographic collaborators Hipgnosis.
