About

Storm Thorgerson designed the cover for Pink Floyd’s ‘Dark Side of the Moon’, an album that can be found in the homes of over 40 million people. In a career spanning over 30 years he has produced album graphics for numerous acts including Led Zeppelin, Peter Gabriel, and Muse. Many of his designs are notable for their surrealism, and in his early work he often took inspiration from the paintings of Rene Magritte. To celebrate the opening of Tate Liverpool’s Magritte exhibition, we asked Thorgerson what it is about Magritte that hooked him.

René Magritte: The Pleasure Principle was on display at Tate Liverpool from 24 June – 16 October 2011
