The artistic legacy of a life of loving music

Renowned artist Patrick Willard, aka W4, has enjoyed thousands of rock concerts and musical events all over the world as a music journalist and television personality. W4 collected and amassed a unique collection of rare tickets, backstage passes and VIP laminates related to countless rock music events, concerts and interviews that collectively trace the arc of his personal and professional life.

With the idea of preserving and sharing these moments with his friends, the artist decided to integrate them into a series of contemporary art pieces reflecting and capturing his personal tastes, passion and style. All of the artist’s original works were initially created on plexiglass, each numbered 1 through 8 for exclusivity and value. The various collage-style art pieces are signed and incorporate W4's signature design elements, which include the concert tickets, backstage passes, hidden hippos, symbols and musical phrases and song lyrics written in Hindi. Due to high demand and increased interest, W4 decided to duplicate his original artworks through limited fine art prints, each signed, numbered, stamped, and certified by the artist. The limited edition works on paper are smaller versions of the original art pieces printed on high quality, fine archival paper.
