Living Colour drummer Will Calhoun is set to debut a “Collection of Rhythm on Campus” on February 20th called the AZA Collection.
For this collection, Calhoun is described as utilizing a wide variety of drumsticks of different colors to build visual artwork. Then, through an extensive phase of adding and removing the amount of light captured, the artwork reveals itself before being laid to canvas. The result is a highly limited art collection crafted from rhythm.
Calhoun worked with SceneFour, an L.A. based art team, to create his signature style and rhythm which are translated through a sophisticated process into abstract imagery.
