The complete interview will be available soon to listen to on Genesis-Publications.com. An insightful look into the mind of one of Britain's most famous artists, he explains how he considers himself a 'mongrel' artist, not pegging himself into the Pop Art category he undoubtedly shaped. He describes, in depth, Pop Artís influence on the concept of the album cover we know today. From The Beatle's 'Sgt Pepper' to The Who's 'Face Dances' and Paul Weller's 'Stanley Road' he gives an incredible insight into the massive amount of work and creativity involved in the creation of such iconic pieces.
Now 77 years old and with no intent to stop working any time soon, he now labels himself as being in his 'late period'. Also discussed are his recent commissions to design a carpet for Britain's new Supreme Court and an 8ft painting for St Paul's Cathedral.
Since 1974 Genesis has created signed limited edition books on behalf of authors and artists ranging from the Beatles to Buckingham Palace.
