When Guitars Aren’t Enough: 10 Musicians And Their Visual Arts

Back in 2005 (Paste 15), we published amazing visual art from some of our favorite musicians. Now we’re sharing it online with you. Enjoy.

“We know that all the arts are brothers,
that each of them illuminates another,
and that a universal light results.”—Voltaire

“Happy is he whom the muses love.”—Hesiod

The creative drive—to take nothingness and fill it—often overwhelms any single outlet. The 10 musicians featured here have all found that the words and music of their songs satisfy only part of their longing to give life to new ideas. Their wells run not only deep, but broad. So, they’ve turned to the visual arts—nine through painting and one through photography—to more fully express themselves.
