Over the past decade, Leif Podhajsky's kaleidoscopic artwork has helped popularize the resurgence of psychedelia by reinventing the style for contemporary culture. By exploring the relationship between the organic and digital realms, Podhajsky's work speaks to a new generation of curious minds.
Best known for his striking, Grammy-nominated album covers for musicians, like Foals, Bonobo, Lykke Li, and Young Magic, Podhajsky deftly crosses the boundary between sound and visual art. The reverberating, ethereal vocals of Tame Impala's debut album Innerspeaker, for instance, are embodied in the visual space of Podhajsky's iconic, ever-retracting dreamscape cover.
