With One Inch Punch, Scott Ian is embarking on a career first, the creation and release of a fine art collection. Each of the 12 pieces in the collection are available in highly limited editions. All of the works are numbered and individually signed by Scott Ian and art team SceneFour.
Scott Ian crafted the visuals seen in One Inch Punch with art team SceneFour. The creation took place in Los Angeles in 2018. A new approach to building visuals, Ian utilized a customized glove that lights upon fingers hitting the fretboard of the guitar. Hence, his guitar performance dictated the visuals seen within each of the canvases featured in the collection.
Ian is one of the first guitarists to craft a collection of artwork this way, and he is the first rhythm guitarist to execute a full collection using this medium.
