Jose Pasillas II, known for his influential catalog of work with Incubus, created "Liberation" through the new medium of capturing rhythmic performance and putting it to canvas in a debut collection called "Abstract Rhythm + Landscapes."
Stunning visually and sophisticated conceptually, "Liberation" is the combination of both rhythm and hand-augmentation. With careful precision, Pasillas embellishes each "Liberation" piece with paint and ink making the three pieces of "Liberation" one-of-a-kind. Each is numbered and signed by Pasillas.
Of the artwork, Pasillas states:
"The birds flying, along with the drip marks connecting to the rhythmic strokes, all works well together. The drip marks marry the two worlds in a seamless way."
Jose Pasillas II
Jose Pasillas is a father, a son, a brother, a lover, a musician, and a visual artist. He was raised in Calabasas, California, where he co-founded the band Incubus. As a child, Jose played air drums. Whenever he heard Prince's "Take Me With You," he threw his arms around, replicating the rhythm of the song. When he turned fifteen, he got his first drum kit, "a crappy kit with a kitchen chair as a drum throne." His path as a musician was solidified when former Guns n' Roses drummer Stephen Adler, who was their neighbor, stumbled into the Pasillas' home uninvited while they were having Sunday breakfast. Adler asked Jose where his kit was, sat down on that kitchen chair and played "Mr. Brownstone." The next day, Adler showed up with a proper throne for Jose. Not only is Jose now a talented musician, he is also a loving father. His passion lies with the arts, but his love lies with his family. Jose's Mexican heritage and heart has always been important to him and makes up much of who he is as an individual. These influence his art as a musician and fine artist, pouring his soul into visual and rhythmic tales of his affair with creativity.
