Steven Tyler and his painting “Flesh”
Singer, songwriter Steven Tyler is known to most as the charismatic frontman of the Grammy award winning rock band Aerosmith and, more recently, American Idol judge. What many people may not know is that Steven Tyler is also an artist. Tyler has been painting for a number of years, but he has only been showing and selling his work for about 5 years. Skulls adorned with leaves are common themes in Tyler’s paintings, as are guitars. Steven Tyler’s artwork is distributed exclusively by Célébrités Galleries. When I asked Célébrités Galleries owner Gerard Marti about Tyler’s skull paintings, he told me, “For Steven, the skull is the box that contains your brain, the most essential part of the body. It’s also a symbol of power, and eternity, when the body decomposes, the skull stays forever.”
