AzM BLOG: #ART (Portrait) U2: BONO - Juan Osborne

(Juan Osborne) Portrait "U2-BONO"

I really think U2 is more than a band… They aren’t just a musician, since the 1980s the Irish group have worked to address issues concerning social injustice.
For this illustration, I took more than two hundred lyrics from the band website http://www.u2.com/ and counted all the words. Then I spread all the words over a portrait of Bono. I want to make a little tribute to his various charity and philanthropic campaigns by using the colors of the peace flag randomly in the letters.
The font is one of the most commonly used their cover artworks.
Again “love” in the most used word by far. 

Take a look at the beginning of the list: love (526),oh (262),like (239),know (236),go (219),come (214),day (174),can (173),see (170),one (149),need (139),want (132),feel (131),heart (129),away (121),get (119),got (117),say (113),walk (112),now (109),take (108),night (107),time (106),man (105),give (96),run (90),back (89),baby (87),make (87),yeah (86),just (82),way (82),look (81),sky (80),thing (78),fall (74),tonight (69),still (68),believe (66),boy (66),light (66),eyes (65),sing (65),sun (63),song (62),turn (62),world (62),girl (61),new (59),around (58),high (58),find (56),hold (56),blue (54),long (51),tell (51),place (50),shadows (50),call (49),face (46),head (46),waiting (46),heartbreak (45),rain (45),room (45),ain’t (44),name (44),shake (44),soul (44),try (44),talk (43),black (42),never (42),nothing (42),god (41),gun (41),happiness (41),last (41),star (41)…
