Black Metal Tesh

"Black Metal Tesh", 2012

18" x 18", oil on cradled panel

For my latest painting, pianist, radio host and longtime co-host of Entertainment Tonight, John Tesh gets the corpse paint treatment a la King of the Norwegian black metal band Gorgoroth.  I don't why I get shit like this in my head, but once when I saw a photo of King from Gorgoroth, I thought the upside down cross painted on his forehead was some sort of cryptic rune meant to give him the power of Tesh.

Because John Tesh rocks!
