Vault // Monday, July 28, 2014
We announced this week on the site that Juxtapoz was lucky to be invited to participate in what will be a fantastic public art and exhibition in Chicago during Lollapolooza. Shepard Fairey has curated a "Art Alliance: The Provocateurs" in Chicago from July 31—August 4, 2014, featuring a fantastic roster of artists from all mediums and eras. Today, we look at one participating artist, famed Radiohead collaborator and fine artist, Stanley Donwood.

Stanley Donwood for "Treasure Island" book cover

Design // Wednesday, June 18, 2014
Stanley Donwood has long been famous for his album cover and companion artwork for world famous band Radiohead, but he has been able to take his highly notable artwork for the band into a stellar fine art and design career. We hadn't seen this yet, probably because it wasn't available in the US (someone tell us if that was true), but back in 2009 or so, Donwood did artwork for the cover of a special edition of Robert Louis Stevenson's "Treasure Island." Fantastic pairing. Design by David Pearson for White's Books.

Stanley Donwood... On Trees

Juxtapoz // Wednesday, September 18, 2013
Yesterday, we showed you a preview of Stanley Donwood's new show, Far Away is Close at Hand in Images of Elsewhere, opening that London's The Outsiders gallery on September 20, 2013. When we were looking at the new work, we started seeing a theme... a theme that has entered Donwood's work with Radiohead and the King Of Limbs LP: trees! Lots of lonely, ghostly, reaching, bare trees. So we asked Mr Donwood... what's up with the trees?

INSA x Stanley Donwood x Atoms For Peace

Music // Monday, December 10, 2012
Hollywood Dooom is a captivating collaborative artwork by Stanley Donwood and INSA that XL Recordscommissioned to celebrate the launch of Atoms For Peace's debut album, AMOK. Longtime Radiohead and Thom Yorke collaborator, Donwood, created the artwork for the Atoms For Peace album, a scene of armageddon in modern Los Angeles. This was interpreted by INSA as a piece of his patented GIF-ITI.

We stopped by the opening reception for Stanley Donwood’s latest solo exhibition, “Lost Angeles” at Subliminal Projects this past weekend. Lost Angeles will feature a new body of work where Donwood extends his poignant perception on the impact of current societal trends and behavior towards Los Angeles.
