I have chosen to paint this often stereotyped genre of “Metal Heads”, passionate fans of heavy metal who use band t-shirts and heavy metal style as a type of uniform.  Metal heads have had to stand up for their love of heavy metal against those who would say it’s an inferior form of music.  And yet heavy metal has millions of passionate fans all over the world.  It’s been persistently stereotyped, rejected and misjudged.
