Amanda Mocci Renders Famous Musicians in Bizarre Scenes & Styles

Musicians have been art muses for millennia, but Amanda Mocci isn’t simply satisfied with capturing the likeness of her well-known subjects; she integrates charismatic performers like Emily Haines, Thom Yorke and Paul McCartney into surreal compositions. For instance, her picture of the Radiohead frontman has ravens circling his cranium while bark-like antlers grow from his head. Her illustration of Metric’s singer is equally bizarre as a monochromatic Haines sits somberly in a colored room. These portraits are thus infinitely more interesting to browse through in comparison to the work of Mocci’s contemporaries.

Amanda Mocci is currently based in Montreal, Quebec, where she works as a freelance graphic designer and illustrator. She’s already the recipient of numerous awards, taking home the Applied Arts Magazine award four times and winning the silver medal award from Creative Quarterly.
