Steve Lukather is the modern benchmark for guitar excellence and virtuosity. His talent both as songwriter and performer cannot be overstated, as he has penned, recorded, and performed an unparalleled catalogue of music that for millions symbolizes the pinnacle of rock excellence. Lukather’s work with Toto over the last forty five years has resulted in more than 40 million records sold. The band is also responsible for some of the most iconic songs in rock history, like “Roseanna” and “Africa.” As a session guitarist, his talents have graced hundreds of records, most notably Michael Jackson’s mammoth release Thriller, as well as works by Cher, Cheap Trick, Bozz Scaggs, and Alice Cooper. He is also a critically acclaimed solo artist with an impressive list of albums that showcase his extraordinary talents as guitarist, singer, and songwriter.
With the CURRENTS art collection, Lukather ventures into a new body of work...a visual one. Working with art team SceneFour, the guitarist is one of the pioneers in a new medium of fine art, as he is unveiling visuals crafted from his performance on the fretboard. The debut collection that is now available showcases five highly limited works on canvas. All are numbered and individually signed by the artist.
An ambitious undertaking, from start to finish, is now available to art collectors worldwide. In 2021, Los Angeles art team SceneFour invited guitar virtuoso Steve Lukather to begin creating an art collection crafted from the guitarist's unique and extraordinary movements on the fretboard. To execute, Lukather would work with a customized glove that visually documents his performance and translates into abstract artwork fit for the canvas. Each piece showcases a new dimension to the instrument and a new perspective to the performance. The result is CURRENTS, a debut fine art release by Steve Lukather...abstract, vivid, and conceptually powerful.
