Conceptual art collective Scenefour has created a limited edition series of canvasses which capture the motions of Allen’s drumming, rendered in light and colour.

Allen says, “The collection reveals something that up until recently I didn’t even know existed, presenting sound into light.”

The collection is titled ‘Electric Hand: Rhythm + Change’ and is part of the ‘Art Of Drums’ collection which also features worked generated from the playing of Guns N Roses’ Matt Sorum and Jane’s Addiction’s Stephen Perkins

The canvasses can be viewed and purchased exclusively through RickAllenArt.com
