Two paintings by Kurt Cobain will be publicly exhibited for the first time at this year’s Seattle Art Fair, held August 3-6, prior to travelling exhibition tour.   One of them is the painting used as the cover for Nirvana’s 1992 B-sides collection, Incesticide.

The exhibit is the first step in a plan from United Talent Agency, which gained representation of Cobain’s estate in 2016, to bring the late musician’s artwork to the public. Speaking with The New York Times, Joshua Roth, director for United Talent Agency Fine Arts, says that he’s planning to “create a touring exhibition that really tells the story of who Kurt was through artworks, personal artifacts and memorabilia, sort of like what the Rolling Stones did in London.”

While you’ll be able to see Cobain’s paintings at the Seattle Art Fair, they won’t be for sale. “It’s too hard to put a price on them,” says Roth. “They’re very special to the family.”

Roth adds that “there are dozens” of artworks that remain in Cobain’s estate. “Several paintings, many drawings, many sculptures,” he says.

The United Talent Agency is also planning a feature-length film about Cobain’s life, separate from the 2015 documentary Kurt Cobain: Montage of Heck, which features many of the musician’s drawings and journals.

Meanwhile, Cobain’s daughter, Frances Bean, opened an art exhibit earlier this month. According to art news site Artnet, she sold out the entire show in a week.
