Magazine: Mark Ryden and The Odd Future Frontman Become FriendsMusic // Tuesday, 30 Apr 2013
From the May 2013 issue of Juxtapoz Magazine: "It seemed like the unlikeliest of requests. In the summer of 2012, hip-hop collective Odd Future seized international attention across music and fashion publications, both for their brash attitude and a contemporary skate aesthetic, taking the world by storm. The last thing that would cross your mind was that Tyler, the Creator, the unrivaled leader of OF, would like to get in contact with Mark Ryden, the artists renowned for his Pop Surreal paintings. Hip-hop, skate, Pop Surrealism? This hasn't happened before? Sure enough, when Tyler announced his solo album, Wolf, Mark Ryden had created one of the album's three covers."
