Life Changing Art: Ishmael Butler
What a great idea. John Lewis of Baltimore Magazine has this series called "Life Changing Art" in which he asks people about (visual) art that changed their lives. Read the original using the above link or read it below. The art is by Mati Klarwein (1970) and he did many classic covers including Miles's Live Evil and Santana's Abraxas.
What piece of art changed your life? How did it affect you?
The cover to Miles Davis' Bitches Brew. It was the first time I saw music—the feel of the sounds—represented in imagery that seemed perfect in both its abstractness and literal interpretation.
