Artist Statement: This piano was made for this beautiful charity Sing for Hope. Sing for Hope harnesses the power of the arts to create a better world. Their creative programs bring hope, healing, and connection to millions of people in hospitals, care facilities, schools, refugee camps, transit hubs, and community spaces worldwide. I’m very proud of this collaboration.

Melody for the Moon

Artist

Punk Me Tender

Punkmetender was born in the 80s in Paris, France and immigrated to Los Angeles in early 2000. The name came from two of his major influences—Daft Punk and Elvis Presley. At first, graffiti and street art were his main goal, creating illegally on billboards or walls in the cover of night. But soon the focus evolved to fine art and mural installation. Butterflies became his source of inspiration because they represent freedom, spirit, and beauty and have become a constant in all of his artwork. A few years ago, Punkmetender created a new kind of mural installation, integrating three-dimensional butterfly shapes as if they were flying—representing connection on a spiritual and physical level. They are designed to invite the viewer in to the art and to be a part of it by taking pictures of it or with it, ultimately to be inspired to imagine their own reality. Punkmetender is constantly studying art, constantly evolving. His goals are stationed on the moon.
