If you are familiar with my art, you would know that Angus Young was inevitability. I may however, have attempted the impossible with this piece. I set out to try and capture the unique feeling of witnessing ACDC live. When these guys hit the stage with their amps cranked to eleven, the combination of raw power and over the top theatrics envelope all your senses and creates a feeling of energy that is rarely seen with most contemporary bands. There were many possible iconic poses I could have chosen for this piece - Angus’ schoolboy uniform coupled with unique trademark playing style leaves an artist with plenty of inspiration to draw from. I finally settled on the signature “Devil Horn Salute” not only because it is my favorite, but also because it plays into ACDC’s iconic closing live number in which they send tens of thousands of fans screaming in to the night, ears ringing from the cannons blasting “ For Those About To Rock”.
