Brain Damage and A Fleeting Glimpse

Welcome to the Brain Damage gallery!

Within this section, you will find various contributions from talented members of the Brain Damage community, who have a particular artistic flair. As with any art, not all of what you'll find in here might be to your taste, but all of it has been crafted with a lot of effort and dedication, and above all, a respect for Pink Floyd and its constituent past and present members.

We welcome other contributions for possible inclusion here. Not all artwork can be used, for copyright and other reasons, and it might be that we need to reduce the size (physically, or by using a little careful image compression to reduce the overall file size without visually compromising the piece) of contributions should they be used.

Wish You Were Here postage stamp artwork Print E-mail
Wish You Were Here - recreated in stamps! Wish You Were Here - recreated in stamps!

With Wish You Were Here celebrating its 40th anniversary this year, here's a newly created artwork which is very impressive! The vinyl package of WYWH came with a typical holiday postcard, often used to express the sentiment in the album title. What would one use to send a postcard? A postage stamp, of course.

This has been taken to an extreme, and very impressive, conclusion, with Stefan Jürgens having recreated the album cover by using no less than 5000 postage stamps from various countries! The piece measures 148 cm x 158 cm, and none of the stamps were glued at an unusual angle - the contours and shapes are created only by colours or images on the stamps. Stefan told us that it took him five months to complete this artwork, and that the stamps were a random selection that he collected from friends, family or bought at flea markets. He was inspired by the music and the work of Pink Floyd to create this tribute.

The pictures here show Stefan with the finished article, and a close up showing how the stamps were arranged to create the imagery.

Our thanks to Stefan for getting in touch with this; we are always keen to see what people have created, so if you've made your own artwork or version of a Floyd album cover, for example, please get in touch!

Learning To Fly inspires Italian propeller makers Print E-mail

Learning To Fly - propellerSomething slightly different for the Brain Damage Gallery pages today: an Italian based aircraft propeller company - GT Propellers - who have been producing props in wood and composite materials since 1969, have a Pink Floyd and David Gilmour fan in their midst.

Alex Tonini from GT has been in touch to tell us about the prop you see here. It is to honour the Floyd's 1987 track, Learning To Fly. Lyrics from the song have been applied to a laminated wood, 173cm sized prop which weighs around 4kgs. This type of prop is typically fitted to flying school/instructor planes with around 100HP - so Learning To Fly seemed eminently suitable!

A specialist in their field, GT Propellers have made more than 5,000 of the props running worldwide since 1990. They've created this special prop purely "for passion, and not for commercial purposes", and is due to go into service in the air, very shortly.

Below are some images from the creation of the custom propeller, through to the completed item, shown in a field but before it was attached to the front of a training plane, ready to inspire future pilots!

The Wall custom acoustic guitar Print E-mail
Steve Nicoll's Steve Nicoll's

In the latest addition to our ever increasing Pink Floyd inspired artwork gallery, comes this very nice example - a custom designed and painted acoustic guitar.

It is the property of BD reader Steve Nicoll. Steve told us that he got this design done a few years ago - he's a big Floyd fan but his favourite album is The Wall. It really is quite impressive, and unlike many such designs, it utilises the full rear of the guitar with the repeating brick motif. Nicely done...

Our thanks to Steve for submitting the pictures of this eye-catching instrument, and as always, we welcome other contributions, so please get in touch if you have something you'd like included in our growing gallery!

Pink Floyd art - Run Rabbit Run Print E-mail

Run Rabbit Run - Penny CollinsIn the latest addition to our Pink Floyd inspired artwork gallery, comes this very nice example.

Created and submitted by Penny Collins, it forms part of her Behance Gallery, which you can view at You'll notice that rabbits form the basis of her great artworks, and this latest piece was a natural, as Penny explained to us. "I would love to submit a piece to this gallery! I am a die-hard fan - work to Pink Floyd's music, in fact (which inspired THIS)."

Our thanks to Penny, and we urge you to check out some of the other great (but not Floyd-related) pieces in her own gallery. As always, we welcome other contributions, so please get in touch if you have something you'd like included in our growing gallery!

The Darkside of Oz stained glass panel Print E-mail
Darkside of Oz - preparation
Darkside of Oz - completed panel

In January 2010 we posted a nice stained glass panel, created by BD regular Robert Djordjevic, based around the iconic cover for The Dark Side of the Moon.

Robert has, after many hours, just finished his latest piece - which has come out really well. He told us: "The Darkside of Oz stained glass is complete with well over 300 pieces. This took me along time to make due to working steady midnights and 3 little kids. But I had this vision to make this Floyd / OZ stained glass and DSOTM is my favourite album. I think I listened to the CD about a 100 times during the creation of this stained glass.

"Pink Floyd and art to me are one. This is my favourite stained glass to date and I made hundreds of stained glass pieces. It's a shame that I will be selling this during one of my Art shows next year. But I need to build a stained glass shop next to my house so I can continue to make more rock themed stained glass pieces.

"I will send you another picture with this in a window but here it is. I wish there was a way to show Mason, Waters or Gilmour my stained glass. But that said I think Pink Floyd fans on Brain Damage will enjoy this. It's one of a kind..."
