Gojira's drummer Mario Duplantier has always had somewhat of an artistic talent. On top of arguably being one of the world's best heavy drummers, he has an entire website dedicated to displaying and selling his many amazing paintings on both canvas and drum heads alike. Now, he has a brand new exhibition which he has literally created by drumming.
Joining a long line of awesome drummers including Chris Adler (Lamb of God), Steve Smith (Journey) and Gene Hoglan, Mario was recorded by a visual art team known as SceneFour while drumming with glowsticks to create cool light patterns captured with a high exposure camera. Some of the results of his new exhibition Vers Le Cosmos can be seen below:
Hey Mario, any chance we can get just 1% of your talent? Cheers!
