Art in albums’ covers

Posted: Mar 28 2014

Andy Warhol, The Velvet Underground. Vinyl

When we buy a vinyl or a CD we don’t only pay attention to music that,  although it is essential, is only one of the parts of that precious object. The first thing that catches our attention and so we would be able to recognize the vinyl along the time, is the cover. Who has not recorded in memory the covers of their favorite albums? Many times we do not remember the title, but we can not forget the image that makes us anticipate the good moments we spend listening to the music that’s inside.

 

 

 

Illustrators, urban artists … have taken to this new way of translating their work, reach a different audience and raise the vinyl to the category of piece of art,

These are examples of album covers of some of the GUNTER’s artists and other legendary bands and artists.
