Synesthesia is one hell of a phenomenon. Affecting everyone differently, painter Melissa McCracken involuntarily sees colors when she hears music. Transforming an obscure experience into beautiful works of art, she paints what she hears. Radiohead’s “Karma Police” is dark and moody, with vibrant splashes of color. Prince’s “Joy in Repetition” has very little purple, surprisingly, instead employing white paint splatters atop a midnight blue canvas. Iron & Wine’s “Boy With a Coin” is soft, resembling the moment when the sun kisses the horizon and day becomes night. Curious about what a Bowie song looks like on canvas? Take a look below.
