Kurt Cobain’s Paintings are Getting a Tour of Their Own
Among the artist’s collection of works
Entertainment 16 Jan 2018

As another Kurt Cobain film is in the works, the artwork by the Nirvana frontman is gaining steam in the gallery circuit since it showed this summer at the Seattle Art Fair. Among the artist’s collection of works, on view were the namesake painting from the band’s ‘Incesticides’ album cover, as well as other skeletal figurines, comics on paper and portraits. Joshua Roth, the fine art director at the United Talent Agency, says a touring exhibition of Cobain’s artworks is in the works—but don’t expect to buy them. “They will not be available for purchase,” he said. “They’re very special to the family.” Cobain’s daughter Frances Bean Cobain makes similar, expressionistic paintings, which showed this summer at the Gallery 30 South in Los Angeles. With her recent appearance at Art Basel Miami Beach, let’s hope she’s back soon to shows more.
