      "This Is the end" - Artists Mirco Pagano and Moreno De Turco spent more than 200 hours lining up the CDs to achieve a realistic look. What’s incredible is that they used not just some random colorful CDs, but musicians’ own albums!

      These are impressive. Italian artists/designers Mirco Pagano and Moreno De Turco created these cd mosaics of seven classic deceased musicians for an ad campaign by U.S. ad agency TBWA and also an exhibition. The idea behind the project, titled Piracy, is that musicians are being brought down by internet piracy. The cds used in each portrait are that of each individual musician’s music. The musical artists include: Jim Morrison, Bob Marley, Jimmy Hendrix, James Brown, Elvis, and Michael Jackson.
