Jazz saxophonist, band leader and composer Shabaka Hutchings ( @shabakahutchings ) ! His music sounds to me like that is inspired by the colorful, vibrant elements from nature. While I listen him, I imagine many rarely found colorful creatures living in the distant forest are emerged suddenly and listening his music. For this reason, the pattern behind him is composed of endangered species, that are on the IUCN Red List, from the series " #Endangered " by photographer #TimFlach : Egyptian Vulture, Kaiser’s Newt, Ring Tailed Lemur, Saiga, White Bellied Pangolin.
In this way I aim to keep them with a successful young musician while drawing attention to the extinct species.
Second photo is a draft version of the picture. And, of course, many details changed when i was painting.
