One of the most acclaimed and sought-after musicians in the entire metal genre, Gene Hoglan has built a career around his creativity, power, and precision behind the drumkit. For more than three decades, Hoglan has set a remarkable standard for performance that has earned him the nickname "The Atomic Clock."
Hoglan's work with Testament, Death, Dark Angel, Fear Factory, Strapping Young Lad, Dethklok, and Opeth have brought the drummer into legendary status. His rhythm prowess and intricate arrangements set a unique benchmark within metal. Particularly notable is his use of Blast Beats and his extensive and extraordinary use of the double-bass. With this debut collection of rhythm-on-canvas, Hoglan moves from drumkit to canvas, bringing his performance style into the fine art realm with an explosive and powerful collection of artwork.
The fine art debut collection of Gene Hoglan has been underway for more than a year. Working with drumsticks that light, much like a painter would use oils, Hoglan constructed the visuals in the collection through an extensive process with the objective of showcasing his individual rhythmic style onto canvas. Working with art team SceneFour in Los Angeles, the process of creation begins with open shutter photography, allowing Hoglan to build the visuals through short incriments of drum performance. The result is a collection that aesthetically embodies the drummer's rhythmic approach within 12 unique pieces of art. All pieces within the collection are available in highly limited editions, with each work numbered and individually signed by Gene Hoglan.
