The Lynx Special Collection
Steinway & Sons is proud to introduce the debut collection by Lynx (PDF), the first ever Visual Artist in Residence at the Steinway Factory.
Music inspires art: The Painted Series
At once contemporary and classic, Lynx’s abstract paintings are inspired by musical compositions that he visualizes and creates, as he hears them, using Steinway’s upright and grand pianos as his canvases. You can specify a favorite piece of music and a color palette, and your piano will be transformed into a piece of art: completely unique and filled with deep, personal significance.
Both subtle and dramatic, these textured finishes utilize an unprecedented technique called Atmospheric Refractionism. Organic, intricate brush strokes reflect the light in varied directions, granting the textured surface the appearance of waxing and waning, ever changing with the viewer’s vantage point.
A personal selection,
a passionate expression.
Imagine the possibilities.
