Never-seen-before Kurt Cobain’s Paintings On Display At Seattle Art Fair

Organized by the United Talent Agency (UTA), the exhibition took place at Seattle Art Fair from August 3-6. Kurt’s paintings, depicting skeletal figures and dark iconography, strongly coincide with his music. In addition to Cobain’s paintings, Seattle Art Fair showcased a selection of his notebooks that have been in storage since his death in 1994.
Some hardcore Nirvana fans might also recognize one painting. Even though it’s untitled, the same artwork was used on the album cover for “Incesticide”. Despite huge interest, Kurt’s pieces weren’t available for purchase.
Joshua Roth, Head of UTA Fine Arts: “It’s too hard to put a price on them, they’re very special to the family” … “Kurt Cobain was perhaps the most iconic musician of his generation, but his work as a visual artist is often overlooked. These paintings provide an opportunity to see him, and some of his contemporaries, in a new light”.
