Art and Music

Manuzio is a record label where art and music meet. Each project will involve a collaboration between an artist and a musician, and each release will be launched in connection with an art exhibition. In Leifson’s case, Ketil Nergaard has painted a series of paintings related to the music, one for each song. His starting point has been photos collected from social media of some of the women in the lyrics. These have been anonymized digitally and painted in acrylic. The same procedure has been applied to several other motives as well. The painting above is being made based on a childhood photo of Leifson.
