Frances Bean Cobain, the sole offspring of Nirvana frontman / Voice of a Generation X Kurt Cobain and Hole frontwoman Courtney Love, announced today on her twitter and instagram channels she is making prints of her original artwork publicly available for purchase at online retailer depop.
In a classic case of “apple fell close to the paternal tree,” like her father before her, the latest additions to her body of work show an obvious fascination with darker themes of body horror and embryonic … something. The surreal, unsettling pieces are available between $200 to $400, and are almost sure to sell out before I’m even finished posting this article.
Frances Bean, 23, held her first art exhibition, ‘Scumfuck‘, back in 2010 at the La Luz de Jesus Gallery in East Hollywood under the psuedonym Fidler Tim. In October 2012 she announced her first solo exhibit set for February 2013 at LA’s Dark Dark Science Gallery.
A touring exhibition of Kurt Cobain’s art is also currently in the works. Courtney and Frances are collaborating on the project with Jeff Jampol, who is involved in the Cobain estate to told The New York Times in June that “He’s got some amazing canvases that a lot of the world has never seen or even heard of.”
