"TRIPPING THE ART FANTASTIC" • The Illustrated Works of Alan Aldridge

Mr Musichead Gallery is pleased to present ‘Tripping the Art Fantastic: The Illustrated Works of Alan Aldridge’ and welcome legendary illustrator and graphic designer Alan Aldridge. Aldridge has had a nearly forty-year career with a body of work that includes works for The Beatles, The Rolling Stones, Led Zeppelin and Elton John. A double Grammy and Emmy nominee, Aldridge is perhaps best know for his work in the 1970’s on the best selling, award winning children’s book The Butterfly Ball and The Grasshopper’s Feast and The Beatles Illustrated Lyrics which went on to sell over ten million copies. Aldridge has secured his place as one of the world’s greatest illustrators who has burned his images into the world’s pop psyche with his album cover for Elton John’s “Captain Fantastic”, his iconic and controversial “Chelsea Girls” poster for the Warhol film, and his logos for both The Hard Rock Café and The House of Blues. Recent projects include the album design for the best selling Incubus album ‘Light Grenades’ and various other collaborations. The Design Museum of London recently presented a major retrospective of Aldridge’s work that drew tens of thousands of attendees and was the #1 museum attraction in London of 2008.
