Daniel Edlen is an American artist best known for his ongoing series of vinyl record paintings. Using just white acrylic paint and his own style of pointillism, Edlen paints amazingly realistic portraits of famous musicians straight onto vinyl records.
For those wondering if the record is still playable, the answer is unfortunately ‘no’. Edlen says that he actually sources records that are already damaged as he doesn’t want to damage perfectly good records. If you wish to commission a piece for yourself then the cost is $280 + shipping, to contact Daniel you can do so at vinylart.info.
