Las Vegas based artist Tim Bavington translates sound into visual, with tracks from bands such as The Darkness, Oasis and The Rolling Stones serving as the subject matter for his paintings. Bavington has designed a method which assigns a certain colour and composition to each sound or note, while he also allows for his own instinctive response and decision-making throughout the painting process. This system results in colour combinations which Bavington admits he would not have otherwise thought of, and compositions which are as rhythmic as they are dreamlike. Beautiful.
