I was very quick last night, I finished the portrait of Gaahl and took a better photo of it today in the daylight 🙂
Gaahl is know for his participation in the Norwegian black metal scene in shapes of Gorgoroth and God Seed among some, and that he is open about his homosexuality. He actually became “Homo of the Year” 2010 at the Norwegian Gay Gala…
He is also know for that infamous/famous interview where he, while sipping red wine, pondering “Satan” in a reflective manner after a long pause while talking about what influences Gorgoroth’s music! HERE is the short video!
Don’t get me wrong here, I am a big fan of Gorgoroth and I like Gaahl as he is, that very strange but very… unique character, just as it should be. Too many people dwell in the boring middle for my taste! Long live the free personality!
I hope you enjoy this portait 🙂
Next up, either Sid Vicious (Sex Pistols... not very black metal but I appreciate the really old and dirty punk rock era as well because it was so… dirty….) or Cronos (Venom)!
