American rock legend Steven Tyler, best known as the frontman for Aerosmith, also takes a bit of time between performances to pursue his art passion.

According to Lorrie's Pop Life Art Blog, Tyler has been showing and selling his paintings for the last several years, with a very definite theme running through each collection.

"For Steven, the skull is the box that contains your brain, the most essential part of the body," Célébrités Galleries owner Gerard Marti, who sells Tyler's work, told the site. "It’s also a symbol of power, and eternity, when the body decomposes, the skull stays forever.”
