The image shows a big black swan and is based on the dance solo ‘The Dying Swan’. Once brought to us by the famous prima ballerina Anna Pavlova. With enthusiasm she expresses her performance and she spares a sigh. From underneath her wings thirteen (!) great musical heroes appear. All shaped like black swans. And every single one of them has deserved credit in its own musical area as part of our rich musical history. You’ll recognise a few of them for sure. They will perform again, together in this historical arrangement.
An elected audience has been invited and gathered for this very special concert. The people are dancing in and around the famous Swan Lake of Tchaikovsky. Who grows out of the piano keys being part of the wings of the big swan. Everyone in the audience wears headphones, because they are solely chosen to hear this magical concert. We, the spectators, are only invited to look and experience this as The Sound Of Silence (Simon & Garfunkel).
The musical heroes featured in the painting are from left to right:
James Brown, John Lennon, Janis Joplin, Jimi Hendrix, Bob Marley, Michael Jackson, Mozart, Elvis Presley, Kurt Cobain, Jim Morrison, Amy Winehouse, Miles Davis, Freddy Mercury.

Fine Art Print/ Giclée/Piezo Graphic
Fine art print is a high resolution printmaking technique whereby high quality ink is sprayed onto paper. When the process was invented in the late 1980s the name originally applied to fine arts. At the same time, fine art print is also known as giclée or piezo graphic. To clarify the word Giclée we have to look at the French word gicleur, which means ‘nozzle’. While the term piezo is derived from the Greek word piezein, meaning to press. Therefore an indefinite number of prints can be made with this technique. However Toyism fine art prints/giclées/piezo graphics always come in a limited edition, are numbered, signed and come with an official certificate.
