The Highway to Hell creation story
Dean has a life long background in the arts (painter, film sets, tattoos and more) and has been touring musician. His talents are a creative melting pot that is resulting in some of the most unique art for fans of rock music.
Dean was working on the artwork for the Baz Luhrmann film 'Elvis' (2022), he was inspired by an old Petrol/General store. He painted the same style of store in a desert highway scene, which became the setting for this painting.
The Charger was a car his drummer drove when they were in Kinds of the Sun (Dean on Bass), and he just loves the Triumph and Indian. Finally, ZZ Top's Ford was a must for this painting.
The bands (AC/DC, Guns N Roses, Motorhead, Metallica, Led Zepplin, Black Sabbath, Motley Crue, Aerosmith, ZZ Top and Van Halen) are his personal inspirations in those early years. Due to space issues, there are so many more that he would love to have added, but it would have crowded the picture. (See the 'Who's who listing image for everyones name/band)
From the development of the first idea to the completion of this painting took nearly 18 months over the COVID period. It's a pain staking task to compose a painting like this. Initial composition can take 6 months of placing people, moving, removing and finding the right energy for the final image - and that's before the painting even starts.
The original is painted on a 3m x 1.5m canvas that Dean hangs in his dining room wall to allow him to work on it between his other commitments. Dean and his wife Mary are also raising 5 children on the Gold Coast, Australia.
Mary has built a small business taking Deans art and framing smaller versions for sale at the local markets, and more recently online.
If you are a fan of these bands, or are looking for a gift for someone who is, you'll just love this painting.

The original artwork was painted on a 3m wide by 2m high canvas.
Dean scans the original painting on a commercial scanner and we produce high quality prints on smaller sizes.

80's Rock has a very special place in my heart... these bands inspired this work
