Stanley Donwood

Stanley Donwood is a highly renowned artist, perhaps best known for creating artwork for Radiohead, including album covers, such as OK COMPUTER. He and Thom Yorke met as art students and have collaborated for nearly 25 years, since Radiohead’s single My Iron Lung. Stanley’s work also includes a wide range of large screenprints, covers for JG Ballard novels, artwork for the Glastonbury Festival and art installations in Bristol, London, the Netherlands and Sydney. Through his striking work, he partly explores and questions society, sexuality, war, conformity and politics. He has written several books of short stories. He maintains a highly informative website, which includes an insightful blog.

Thanks to Whistleblower Gallery, based in Hove, for their assistance with Stanley Donwood
