Kurt Cobain’s artworks go on view at Seattle Art Fair



Artworks by Nirvana singer and icon, Kurt Cobain, some of which never-before seen in public before, are on view at Seattle Art Fair (3-6 August), on the United Talent Agency (UTA) booth.

UTA’s Director and Cobain’s estate representative told The Art Newspaper: “I kind of like the idea of Kurt as a conceptual artist”. Artworks include the painting that made the cover of Nirvana album Incesticide, a series of comics and drawings which include a depiction of Iron Maiden’s famous mascot, as well as preliminary sketches of the guitar the artist designed with Fender.

These artworks show Kurt Cobain’s creative inspiration and imaginative vocabulary, used throughout all of Nirvana’s visual identity.
