The Legendary Mati Klarwein http://www.juxtapoz.com/erotica/the-legendary-mati-klarwein http://www.juxtapoz.com/erotica/the-legendary-mati-klarwein The Legendary Mati Klarwein
Mati Klarwein is often considered "the man literally responsible for every great, legendary record cover you've ever seen--if he didn't do it, he inspired it." The masthead of the psychedelic visual revolution, Klarwein's aesthetic is a beast of its own and its reverberations can be seen in a staggering amount of contemporary illustration, especially artwork made for music. These wild, expressive images harness an erotic power of their own, fueled by the iconically free-flowing sexuality of the era.
