CHAD SMITH

Smith’s venture into the art world began in 2015 when Los Angeles visual-art team SceneFour approached the musician. They’d previously worked with drummers like Black Sabbath’s Bill Ward, the Grateful ...Read more...Dead’s Mickey Hart, and Slayer’s Dave Lombardo to create eclectic, abstract works that attempted to capture the essence of their music in a visual form. “I thought their ideas were really interesting,” says Smith, who had never previously considered creating visual art. “It’s always fun to change and grow and challenge yourself and do something different.”

The process began with Smith playing drums with lighted sticks at SIR Studios in Los Angeles while the SceneFour team photographed him. “They then take the images and manipulate them in different ways,” Smith says. “They use different colors, textures, and depths. I’ll say to them, ‘I like that. I don’t like this. What if we did this?’ The whole process takes a few months, though I’m not actually there with them and the printers and sheets and everything.”
