World of Grooves and theBroken Record Collection is a series of art and jewelry crafted entirely out of vinyl records. Over a decade of dedication to this project has led Denver to develop a technique that allows him to break the records he loves and turn them into seamless silhouettes of iconic musicians and singers. The idea to replace the paint brush with this analog media was born 2006 out of Denver’s obsession for music and DJing. As he pursued careers in music and graphic design, Denver continued to explore methods of cutting and shaping LPs.
The attention to detail needed to create these timeless art pieces leaves no room for shortcuts. Over the years, Denver acquired the skills for his creative process of illustrating, designing the cut patterns, cutting the albums, piecing the puzzle together and polishing the work. In 2018, he was given an opportunity to create his first large format piece to show at Feature’s (Sneaker Boutique) store inside the Wynn Las Vegas – “Stardust”, a portrait of the late David Bowie. Now, after debuting his solo exhibition at The Midway in San Francisco last year, he has his sights set on creating even larger works and installations for some of his favorite events and music festivals.
Denver’s mission is to create art that allows people to visually
experience the music they love in ways they never have before.
This is the passion project of a music lover, for music lovers –
