Ian McLagan (12 May 1945 – 3 December 2014) was a life-long artist and musician. Best known as a founding member of the Small Faces and then The Faces, along the way Mac played and recorded with the Rolling Stones, Bob Dylan, Bruce Springsteen, Patty Griffin, Billy Bragg, Ron Wood and many, many more, and had a number of fine solo albums to his name as well.
Mac suffered from migraine headaches and, determined to make the best of a bad situation, he documented them in paintings. He tried in his work to faithfully reproduce the colorful auras that come with the migraines. They may appear to be abstract but to Mac they were anything but.
Mac wanted to share his art but was unwilling to part with any of the paintings, so he had prints made and we had a show of those at Yard Dog in 2010.
We are now offering a small number of his original paintings for sale, along with the remaining digital prints.
McLagan died of a stroke on December 3, 2014, at University Medical Center Brackenridge in Austin.
