The Piano Man

For this piece, Jeff mixed his observation skills with carefully-selected song lyrics to illustrate that we are all part of a collective story. He took two classic songs – ‘Waterloo Sunset’ by the Kinks and ‘Piano Man’ by Billy Joel – and wove them between the drops of rain that awaken his art.

“I select songs with a rich narrative,” he explained. “A whole life can culminate in one single, brief interaction. Listening to music as I paint, I see the song as a ‘brief’. Just a few lines can bring life to a character.”

He revealed that this piece has several clues to the song inspiration – see if you can spot them!
