Steve Lukather is the modern benchmark for guitar excellence and virtuosity. His talent both as songwriter and performer cannot be overstated, as he has penned, recorded, and performed an unparalleled catalog of music that for millions symbolizes the pinnacle of rock excellence. Lukather’s work with Toto over the last forty five years has resulted in more than 40 million records sold. The band is also responsible for some of the most iconic songs in rock history, like “Roseanna” and “Africa.” As a session guitarist, his talents have graced hundreds of records, most notably Michael Jackson’s mammoth release Thriller, as well as works by Cher, Cheap Trick, Bozz Scaggs, and Alice Cooper. He is also a critically acclaimed solo artist with an impressive list of albums that showcase his extraordinary talents as guitarist, singer, and songwriter. His most recent solo album Bridges was released this year.
With the Dos Pinguinos art collection, Lukather ventures into his second full collection of fine artwork. Again, working with art team SceneFour, the guitarist is one of the pioneers in a new medium of fine art, as he is unveiling visuals crafted from his performance on the fretboard. Now available, each piece in the collection is numbered and individually signed by Steve Lukather.
Dos Pinguinos is the second collection of artwork by Steve Lukather. To create the pieces, the guitarist worked alongside art team SceneFour to bring forward a unique assembly of visuals on canvas, each built from a new medium in fine art. A multi-phase process, the artwork’s creation begins with Steve utilizing a customized glove that showcases his note choice, as he performs on the fretboard, with light. Once captured, these performances are brought into SceneFour’s studio where they are re-engineered to bring out the abstract nature of Lukather’s playing. When visually completed, each piece is named by Steve and printed in highly limited editions on canvas.
