Lukos Hey’s Painting in Honor of McCoy Tyner (VIDEO)

Australian-born, Prague-based painter Lukos Hey was the subject of my latest Matt’s Long Take, filmed just a few days before a lockdown was announced in the Czech Republic in response to the coronavirus pandemic.

One of the things he showed me during the video was one of his latest works – a painting in honour of the jazz piano legend McCoy Tyner, who recently passed away. This clip, which I extrapolated from the full-length video, is of this painting; here, Hey talks with depth about the method and inspiration behind this work, even illustrating the musical aspect of the painting on his drums.
