This painting is a commission for an album cover for a band in Minneapolis. I really loved their idea to include tapes from different years of the cassette-era. Each colored square on the painting is exactly 12 x 12 inches, and the size of the tapes is uniform, of course. The resulting pattern of tapes and squares repeating is mesmerizing to me - I'm VERY happy with the way this painting turned out! A little suggestive upselling: imagine how great this painting would go with another piece, also for sale on Vango: Classic Silver 80s Walkman Painting? Boom! I have edged this painting in aesthetic dark gray faux leather and painted tacks. The overall effect is intended to be aesthetic overload. My paintings have appeared in "Better Homes and Gardens" publications and at Room and Board stores nationally. In addition to being a painter, I am also a filmmaker living in Los Angeles - my best known film is "Four Boxes." I hope you like this cassette painting as much as I do.

I'm a painter and filmmaker who wrote and directed the film "Four Boxes." I've been making and showing paintings for more than a decade. My paintings are for sale throughout L.A., have appeared in various magazines, galleries, and publications, and been for sale nationwide at all Room and Board locations.
