Here I would break the rules and write less. Because it is less I have to say. Artists would talk for himselves. Storm Thorgerson. One of my favourite artists, without a doubt. Artist, photographer, designer – he is known for working in all branches of art. His fantasy, point of view, technique – I love everything he does. He designed CD covers for hundreds of very well known artists from Peter Gabriel (Peter Gabriel 1) and Pink Floyd (Back Catalogue, the Wall) to Muse (Absolution) and Audioslave (Audioslave), collaborated with world-class artists, created number of books, logos, illustrations, posters, designs.. Countless pieces of work, real and surreal at the same time. I am not going to talk about him much – his works talk for him. Necessary to cast a glance at his works here.
Anyway, there is a question – how does he stay so creative? Where all his ideas came from? The past I would say. And René Magritte, of course. Storm thorgerson is a great example of getting inspiration from other artists, but not reproducing their ideas, just making those ideas his ideas, represent them in differend way, watching from a differend angle. It is obvious that we can not compare techniques of these artists, Thorgerson – digital artist the most and magritte – classic painter, but point of view, seeing of the world and ideas – that‘s what unite them. Magritte teaches how to make the audience think, he is thought-provoking specialist, teacer of Storm Thorgerson and a number of other artists. You can visit his museum in Belgium.
