Vinyl records are more hip(ster) with mandalas painted on them

Now vinyl won’t only be great to listen to, they’ll be nice to look at as well! New York-based artist Sara Roizen creates colourful and eye-popping mandalas using canvases that are very hip(ster): vinyl records.

Using real vinyl LP records, Roizen combines visual art with music by hand painting on portraits, landscapes, and patterns onto the discs. She uses a combination of acrylic paints, stencils, gels, and paint pens to create the pieces, which despite having been painted on, can still produce music!

‘My approach as an artist has always centered around the process rather than the finished product’, explained Roizen. ‘I work spontaneously and intuitively in the studio in a form of dialogue between myself and the materials. This process is a constant self-exploration, often revealing feelings of which I was previously unaware’.
