Kurt Cobain - Finished by Flashback33 Kurt Cobain - Finished by Flashback33
After nine long months of here-and-there painting in between work and commissions, I was finally able to finish this piece.

Kurt has changed my life, and he is one of the most beautiful-hearted individuals I've ever had the privilege of painting.

Acrylics, 4' x 5'

This is fucking beautiful and amazing. Kurt have change my life too, and i think that the people who criticizes don't get the point. He has a beautiful soul, a pure heart and this awful world was too much for him. He have made simple music that can really touch a thousand of hearts over the world. Ever here in Brasil. The magic is in her powerful lyrics. This piece it's really awesome, congrats and thanks for that.

I completely agree, Cole.  It breaks my heart to think that the world lost this kind young genius before he had a chance to even approach his full potential.  Your portrait is a beautiful tribute to him.

I really love Kurt. I believe that he can speak to many people who are sad and hurt (like me). It's really great that you like him. And your art is really amazing!

So... Are you going to become a heroin junkie like him too? The reason that he could "speak to so many people" is because his lyrics were just angsty and sad. Everyone feels that way sometimes more than they will admit. It's called puberty, Teen years then growing up to realize how really fucked up the world is. Nothing too unique.

The great thing about Cobain was that all the beauty in his soul was visible right there in his face and it made him a joy to draw or paint even to this day. Great work!

Very, very nice.
I like that there's a lot of colour so it looks lively in a way, but it's still very serious.
Great work!
