I forgot how much i loved this cover, this album was a big favourite of mine around the time of it’s release but since then has been gathering dust in my semi-archived stack of CD’s.
The cover was painted by Wayne White, an artist i knew nothing about, which is not surprising as i know nothing about art. Seems Mr white has been using his creative talents for along time now and over alot of different mediums but it seems his practice of painting bold typefaces over thrift store paintings of American landscapes has gandered him big props in the art world. It’s as kitsch as hell but doesn’t come off shallow like a row of wall mounted ducks.
More examples of Wayne’s work.
A man of many talents, Wayne directed the video to Peter Gabriel’s ‘Big Time’
