about this painting:
Metallica Cliff Bur
The rock legend
Leonid Afremov has several paintings dedicated to great people – these are primarily musicians. Before us is one of them. It was painted in the early period of the artist's career. So, we see the legend of rock, the legendary guitarist of Metallica band – Cliff Burton. For the musician’s image, the artist used almost all the colors of the rainbow. The very figure of the guitarist almost merges with the background; it is like a continuation of his clothes. The end of the guitar neck on the right is flooded in white colors. Among the clearest elements of the painting we can name the musician’s face and hands. On the face we see a pretty distinct smile – a clear sign of satisfaction and joy from the playing. The musician's hair uncurls as if the wind is blowing on them and also dissolves in bright background colors. The next clear element of the painting is the right hand of the musician which slides on the strings of his legendary guitar. Painted in yellow, it also fits very well into the overall palette.
Rock will never end
As already mentioned, Cliff Burton is a legend of Metallica and therefore we decided to recall the most interesting facts about this legendary rock band:
- At the beginning of the song "Nothing Else Matters" you can hear the fingering on the open first, second, third and sixth strings. Such a compositional solution was due to the fact that its author, James Hetfield, when he started composing the song, held the phone with one hand and talked with his girlfriend. Who would have thought!
- To torture the prisoners in the American prison at the base of Guantanamo, the compositions of the Metallica band were often used. The vocalist James Hatfield said in an interview that he did not mind using his music in such a way, "We have been tortured our parents and wives with our music for many years. Why not the Iraqis?"
- In 1985, the band was nicknamed Alcoholic for the excessive addiction of the members to alcohol. The fans of the band went to even greater length – T-shirts with Kill 'Em All album sleeve were even released, but instead of a hammer and blood, the sleeve depicted a bottle of vodka and the spilled liquid and instead of the inscription Kill' Em All – Drink 'Em All.
This painting will undoubtedly cause the most positive emotions and will catch the fancy especially of those who love rock music and are a fan of the legendary Metallica band and especially of Burton cliff. It will be another reason to remember your favorite nostalgic music and plunge into those years when you could still see the legendary rock bands on the stages.
