The Creativepool studiocrowd project that searches for artworks inspired by Cleveland rapper Machine Gun Kelly and his eclectic new album, bloom, is no new concept. Artists have been inspired by music (and vice versa) for decades and from a marketing perspective, it is arguably the purest form of engagement, as the inspiration isn’t pre-empted or researched but an immediate and authentic response to the stimulus.
Here are some of our favourite examples of musician and music inspired artworks and commissioned works by creatives on Creativepool.
Bowie by Erik Rutterford, Figurative Artist & Illustrator
Concert, feeling the music, by Simon Keeling, retoucher for 5FM Radio
Blondie by Ryan Hodge, Illustrator
Prince R.I.P by Gary Wing, Illustrator
Kate Bush by Denis Zulian, Creative Artworker
Shadows of Dylan by Selman Hosgor, Illustrator
Vector Portrait, Rihanna, by Kevin Murphy, Senior Comms Exec
