David Lee Roth’s Recent Painting Features A Warning About USA
Former Van Halen frontman David Lee Roth shared a post on his official Twitter page revealing a brand new painting of his. This time, the artist interpreted the American flag with different colors and patterns, and added a motto that read, ‘Global Storming.’
As many of you know, in addition to being one of the greatest frontmen in the history of rock ‘n’ roll thanks to his tenure with Van Halen as well as his solo career, David Lee Roth is a successful visual artist working in painting and drawings using his art for social commentary. The musician even has his own comic series named ‘Soggy Bottom’ and often reveals his personal stories with his sketches.
Recently, the former Van Halen frontman shared another stunning painting on his official Twitter page which led to a discussion about the meaning of the art. The majority of people thought the painting was an evolved version of the American flag with different colors. According to fans, the reason behind this was to reflect political tones in the colors as well as drawing attention to climate change.
A fan commented on the American flag homage:
“Your color choices for the American flag intrigue me and I am wondering what it means for your impression of the state our country is in! Keep expressing yourself, David! You are an artist through and through! Take care be safe and keep on rocking brother!”
Another pointed out the political aspect of the painting:
“Maybe some political tones in the colors? Thanks for sharing, sir.”
While there are people who think the painting is a reflection of the American flag, there were also plenty of fans who think it’s an ocean with a sunset. It’s fair to say the painting looks like a sunset with its orange, blue, and yellow colors. Furthermore, it makes sense once adding global warming into the meaning since Roth may be warning his fans about the future of our world by showing a beautiful feature of it.
A comment stressed the nod to global warning:
“This is so beautiful, David! I love the look of waves/water and your color choices. I detect a social commentary on global warming. We must all do what we can to protect our world.”
A fan was skeptical about the meaning:
“Is it supposed to be the ocean with a beautiful sunset?”
