“For The Birds, From Below” by James R Eads

Collectionzz proudly announces Art Unleashed: Rock Art for a Cause, a collaboration with many extraordinary artists from around the world, with two goals. Our first goal is to raise money for charity, and we will be donating all profits from the sales of the art to the charities of the artists’ choices. Our second goal is to exclusively bring to our members some of the most phenomenal rock art they’ve ever seen!

Many of the artists who are a part of Art Unleashed: Rock Art for a Cause are very well-recognized within the world of rock and gig posters, with undeniable trademark styles they’ve honed over several decades. But we didn’t stop there — we are including top artists across many genres. From tattoo artists and muralists, to those who work in the film industry and create fine art. To create original and interpretive art, we asked the artists to use a song as inspiration, and harness their guttural reactions to the music itself, without limitation. We will announce the songs that inspired the art when we announce the sale dates, however, they range all the way from the psychedelic rock of the 60’s and 70’s to the grunge and alternative music movements of the late-80’s and 90’s.”

“Scar Tissue is one of those songs that I had on repeat as a teenager. There’s a lot of nostalgia built into this song for me, I remember the music video playing on MTV and it really capturing that California desert vibe to perfection. With this piece I wanted to pay homage to the music video setting of Joshua Tree, which has become one of my favorite places in Southern California. The main hook of the song “with the birds I share this lonely view” was the driving inspiration for this piece. There is something comforting about the isolation of driving through the desert – you can see the raw beauty of the sunsetting for miles and miles. “I decided on NAMI for my charity because there are a lot of people I have loved that have struggled and still struggle with mental illness and NAMI has been a great foundation for providing education and support on mental illness.” James R.
