So I as I said learned something new today, a great bit of info about an artist. Have you heard of Alex Steinweiss? Well you should considering he basically invented the album art cover. Yep in the late 1930's he was the art director at Columbia Records and made the monumental change from plain brown uncreative covers to making it more a commonality to put art and design on album covers. He himself designed almost a 100 covers, and really was the archetype for has come to be big business and some amazing art.
In conjuction with this I figured I would let you know about another sick art show going on this weekend. Shepard Fairy has his 1st solo show of 2011 in Santa Monica, opening this weekend at the Robert Bergman Gallery. Some of you were lucky enough to see my art at this gallery last summer (more like lucky me:) ), well now come see a real legend showing some sweet sweeet work. Over 80 pieces inspired by music and 12".
