The story behind Therion

I have produced a group portrait of the Swedish symphonic metal band Therion. This is entirely black /grey/ white. There is no colour because the source image had been modified with some colour channel manipulation, so I converted the image to grey-scale. Unfortunately, I then found that it made for a real challenge to paint such a piece.

I first heard Therion in 1997 and was struck by the uniqueness, absolute beauty and dynamism of the music. You can go and check out their videos on YouTube.

Christofer Johnsson is the founder of this band (bottom left), and he is an incredible guitarist. Supporting him (in this topmost photo) are, female vocalist Lori Lewis (top left) and the bass guitarist Johann Niemann (top, second from left), vocalist Snowy Shaw (top, third from left), guitarist Kristian Niemann (top second from right), vocalist Matt Leven (top right), drummer Petter Karlsson (bottom right), female vocalist Katarina Lilja (bottom middle).

This photorealistic painting is a contemporary take on group portrait paintings typified by many of the Seventeenth century dutch painters like Frans Hals.
