Chester Bennington was an American singer, songwriter and musician. He was the lead vocalist for Linking Park. Chester was tormented throughout his life by mental health problems, a disease which I feel is the biggest threat to humanity in these times, and in this system where empathy unfortunately can not be profiterised. Chester Bennington committed suicide in June 2017. Chester Bennington wrote a letter to his friend Chris Cornell after he had committed suicide in May. Some of the words of that letter are on the canvas in my painting.

“Chester Bennington” is available as a signed limited edition print, please see the “Musician” series on the limited edition print section of the website.
