Kurt Cobain

‘Heart shaped coffin’ is the original title of this video http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UThKn_TmfmM that Cobain almost entirely designed. 

‘Heart shaped box’ apparently recalls a box Curt’s wife gave him at the beginning of their relationship.

When i saw it again after many years I had the disturbing feeling of a death premonition or awareness.

This video inspired my painting, together with the controversies around his death modality.

A huge thanks to Ricky Russo for helping me discover the story of Nirvana, a music band i grew up with and whose music i always loved but i never really understood.
