This painting is inspired by the legendary musician and artist Syd Barrett, a founder of one of the best bands in a history of rock music and my personally favorite - Pink Floyd.
Roger Keith -Syd- Barrett was a British musician, composer, singer-songwriter, and painter. Best known as a founder member of the band Pink Floyd, Barrett was the lead singer, guitarist and principal songwriter in its early years and is credited with naming the band.
Barretts innovative guitar work and exploration of experimental techniques such as dissonance, distortion and feedback influenced many musicians.
Pink Floyd wrote and recorded several tributes to him, most notably the 1975 album Wish You Were Here, which included -Shine On You Crazy Diamond-, as homage to Barrett.
