Everyone has a specific favorite album. There’s something about seeing a vinyl in your hands that brings back specific memories, emotions, and lyrics. Music is personal to everyone. Stephen Wilson took this category even more personal by reminiscing where his career started, in a rock band based out of NJ in the 80s. Who knew that many years later, he would be embracing the subject of music within his new artwork. This collection took the longest to even start. There was so much to consider. Every album has it’s own design. Some album covers featured iconic images (Abby Road by The Beatles), some feature iconic artists (The Velvet Underground & Nico’s banana design by Andy Warhol), and others were labeled as controversial at the time (Nevermind by Nirvana).
The Albums features 1 artist’s proof and 8 editions, making the series limited and even more special than previous works.
“Art, fashion, and music, the three main sources of everything I’ve done so far. I used to be in a rock band so seeing it come full circle is pretty exciting! It’s taken me the longest to even start this new category because there are so many ideas and techniques to put forward with very specific references to each album. You learn so much about someone through music. I can’t wait to learn what everyone is into and what similarities we have through these album covers.”
