Former Van Halen vocalist, David Lee Roth, posted the most recent piece of his artwork collection on his Twitter account and argued that we have all been hacked by the thing we use the most, the internet.
David Lee Roth is best known for his successful career as the frontman of the iconic band Van Halen. He was the lead vocalist of the band from 1974 to 1985, then in 1996, and finally from 2006 until the band’s disbandment. However, his musical genius is not the only reason why David Lee Roth has been making it to our headlines.
At the beginning of 2020, after the COVID-19 outbreak, David Lee Roth started working on his visual artwork and began sharing his pandemic and politically-themed sketches on his Twitter account. As you probably know, he often enjoys posting pieces with mysterious messages that can be interpreted in multiple ways, because that’s what art is all about.
Upon receiving hundreds of positive feedback on his artwork from his fans and followers, Roth decided to release a new visual art project, ‘The Roth Project‘ which he described as a visual and audio story that he designed. His shift from a rockstar to a visual artist was surprising to some and exciting for many.
A couple of days ago, he posted a new piece of his artwork in which he seems to be criticizing the fact that the internet has taken over our lives. His latest creation received dozens of positive comments considering both the style and the color of the artwork. A fan even asked Roth whether he’s planning to display his art in a gallery exhibition because it’s definitely worth it.
Here’s what a fan commented:
“Do you have an art exhibit anywhere Dave? It would be nice to see all your work in a gallery exhibit.”
