First Look: Alice By Linkin Park’s Mike Shinoda
“You go through so many things as a child, then you grow up and discover that none of that stuff mattered, except for the impression it made on your mind.”
– Joan Walton Callaso
Take four of today’s most talented artists and visualizers, one of the all-time great Disney classics “Alice In Wonderland” celebrating its 60th anniversary next year, and inspiration from directors Tim Burton’s blockbuster film version… MINDstyle is proud to present a first look at Disney’s Mad Hatter Project. Alice by Linkin Park’s Mike Shinoda combines his interpretation and vision based on the classic, blended with an edge of Burton and fused with his own original painting. Sculpted by Dave Cortes from Inu Art Studio, the highly detailed Alice and Rabbit presents a world of imagination. Plans are in the works for the launch in 2011 in celebration of the classic animation anniversary!
With Art Basel finishing up, and the Hello Kitty show coming to a close, I thought I’d show you what my piece ended up looking like. I called it “Hello Vishnu,” obviously.
Edit: I realize you guys don’t all know my sense of humor, but rest assured that this painting isn’t about the Hindu religion nor our Indian fans at all–just for the record. We love our fans in India and hope to see you on tour in the future.
I’m headed to NYC for the private opening of “True Self” at Jonathan Levine. Above is a small detail of the piece I did…Gary asked each artist to do a piece that represents themselves in some way, although not necessarily a self-portrait. Mine is a little bit like a painted doodle…it’s like what I would draw on a notepad next to a hotel phone if I was on a long call (except in paint instead of ballpoint ink). With that said, I called it “DoodleBrain.”
Other True Self participating artists: Adam Wallacavage, Alex Prager, Amor Muñoz, Boris Hoppek, Christian Clayton, Cleon Peterson, Dalek, Dave Cooper, David Sandlin, Deedee Cheriel, Eric White, Esther Pearl Watson, Fons Schiedon, Frieda Gossett, Gary Taxali, Gary Baseman, Gerard Dubois, Gretchen Ryan, James Jean, Jonathon Rosen, Korin Faught, Lauren Bergman, Leah Hayes, Lola, The London Police, Luke Chueh, Marion Peck, Mark Ryden, Mark Todd, Martha Rich, Mike Shinoda, Miso, Natalia Fabia, Orly Cogan, Ray Caesar, Rob Clayton, Robin VanValkenburgh, Ron English, Ryan Heshka, Ryan Jacob Smith, Shag, Shannon Freshwater, Tim Biskup, Travis Lampe. Sounds like a good show.
