The exhibition I went to today, Lost Angeles, featured art by Stanley Donwood.
Stanley Donwood is an artist from England who is most famous for doing all of Radiohead’s artwork. To be specific, his art has been used for 15 singles and 9 EPs, and he did the album art for Kid A, OK Computer, and Hail to the Thief. The art for Thom Yorke’s solo album, The Eraser, was part of a larger series entitled London Views, all of which was shown alongside the Lost Angeles work. He has also done all the art for the Glastonbury Festival since 2002.
A description of the work from the Subliminal website:
Lost Angeles will feature a new body of work where Donwood turns his poignant perception on the impact of current societal trends and behavior towards Los Angeles. His visual meditation on society envelopes viewers in a beautifully graphic landscape of impending doom. The fluid black and white scene resonates with honesty and forewarning […] On display will be an 18-foot apocalyptic panorama of the City of Angels being destroyed by fire, flood, and meteor storm.
It runs through Friday at 4 at a gallery called Subliminal Projects, so if you are in LA tomorrow with nothing to do, I highly recommend stopping by. To see more of his work, head to Slowly Downward.
