ALBUM OF THE WEEK - Joe Satraini's Surfing with the Alien

Joe Satraini
Surfing with the Alien
First on our tour of objet d'art, let's take a look at the aesthetically pop-art cover from Joe Satraini, Surfing with the Alien. Reminiscent of an Andy Warhol or, even more so, American comic pop-art icon Roy Lichtenstein, this album cover employs primary colours, sharp, speeding lines and the Silver Surfer-inspired pseudo-male futuristic character. The balance of both depth and line are well dissected by his placement on the centre of the canvas.
