Daniel Edlen: Vinyl Art

daniel_edlen_jc

Arizona-based artist Daniel Edlen has been collecting vinyl since he was a teenager at art school. One day he combined his two passions of art and music, and started painting musicians on to their records. ‘The Beatles were the first,’ he says, ‘of course.’ He uses acrylic paint and prefers to use records that would otherwise be thrown away, although the flipside can still be played. ‘I like the tangibility of vinyl, the memories,’ he says. ‘I remember what the cabinet smelled like with my dad’s records, the sound of the shrink-wrap crinkling, the feel of the record in your hand as you flip it from one side to the other.’

Custom-made records can be purchased at vinylart.info
