While Incubus prepares to tour South Africa, later this month, its frontman Brandon Boyd will showcase his fine art, large scale prints, books, lithographs, and a curated retail shop at his week-long Opti-Mystic pop-up gallery. The Opti-Mystic pop-up gallery will run from 26 February - 3 March 2018 at the at Gallery One 11 in Cape Town.
Boyd grew up in Calabasas, California. In 1991 he began singing and writing song lyrics with high school friends in what would become the Grammy-nominated, multi-platinum selling, and internationally recognised rock band, Incubus. In April of 2017, the band released their eighth studio album 8
and will tour extensively throughout this year.
Though best known as a musician, Boyd is an avid and lifelong visual artist for whom art has played an increasingly prominent role. He is the author of three books combining his artwork, photography, and creative writing: White Fluffy Clouds
(2003), From the Murks of the Sultry Abyss
(2007), and So The Echo
(2013). Boyd has held book signings, art talks, and solo and group exhibits extensively throughout the US and internationally in cities such as London, Paris, Amsterdam, Rome, Zurich, and exhibited at Art Basel Miami and other art fairs.
Celebrating the 20th anniversary of their first major label album S.C.I.E.N.C.E with a world tour, Incubus has announced its first South African tour in Cape Town and Pretoria in February 2018...
