Radio Juxtapoz Podcast, ep 26: Radiohead's Visual Legacy and the Evolving Art of Stanley Donwood
For nearly 30 years, Radiohead's visual identity has been rendered from the mind and evolving style of artist, Stanley Donwood. Like a 6th member of the band, his experiments in the creative process have mirrored the band's constant reimagining of their own sound. Often embedded in the studio while albums are being made, Donwood listens, expands, illustrates and creates his own story while one of the biggest bands in the world relates their own. The bond generates a special and abiding conversation between artist and musician, one that rarely gets to nurture as music packaging has become more of a luxury.
On the eve of the release of his first monograph, There Will Be No Quiet, Radio Juxtapoz sat down with the British artist in Shoreditch before select appearances he was making around London in conjunction with the book. We talked about Donwood's unique partnership with Radiohead, his relationship to the early days of London street art and Lazarides Gallery and some of the newest collaborative work and public art projects that coincided with Thom Yorke's ANIMA record. Donwood's history is an incredible journey through music, literature and underground art, and in a candid interview, we hear a good story.
