Size: 3m x 1.85m / 9' 10" x 6'

Many people see The "Forever 27 Club" as a gathering of musicians, I decided to add Jean Michel Basquiat as a 7th. He was  a major visual artist which also died at 27 and very much part of the same scene. The BBC reporter Vincent Dowd  called Basquiat the "neglected genius".  

* History of the "Forever 27 Club"

The “Forever 27 Club” refers to musicians / artists who died at the age of 27.

The term "Forever 27 Club" was not coined to refer to the list of musicians who died at the age of 27 until after Kurt Cobain death on April 5th, 1994. Since the death of Cobain, there has been much focus in the media surrounding the 27-death phenomenon. Also, the high-profile death of Amy Winehouse on July 23rd, 2011 once again brought renewed interest concerning the “Forever 27 Club”.
