Artist Joe Simpson is working on a series of detailed paintings of his favorite musicians’ faces. So far, he has completed portraits of indie royalty like Vampire Weekend’s Ezra Koenig, the National’s Matt Berninger, Iron & Wine’s Sam Beam, and more. To create the paintings, Simpson meets the artist and takes photos. He’ll display all the portraits in a solo exhibition later this year.
I wouldn’t mind having an Ezra Koenig original :P Check them out!
