Muses come in all shapes and sizes, and that statement couldn’t be truer than when examining these artistic Thom Yorke depictions. The Radiohead frontman has inspired countless musicians, but his face is also a major staple in the art community, as demonstrated by these examples. He’s regularly featured in celebrity portrait series, and more daring artists have used the crooner’s recognizable visage to demonstrate bizarre rendering techniques.

For instance, one truly abstract image found within these Thom Yorke depictions has Yorke re-imagined as a decaying zombie corpse, complete with a radio grotesquely embedded into his head. Another strange and artsy Thom Yorke depiction uses LEGO stop-motion animation to replicate one of the vocalist’s performances.

Not everything has to be bizarre however, as Thom Yorke was recently featured in Huge Magazine looking boho chic in Jun Takahashi-designed clothes. Stats for 10 Artistic Thom Yorke Depictions Trending: Older & Warm
