Stanley Donwood for Oakley

The Radiohead coverwork artist brings his distinctive creative designs to the sunglasses brand

Stanley Donwood is famed for his artwork on Radiohead's albums, which has gained him worldwide recognition since 1994. Having designed all the artwork for their second album ‘The Bends’ onwards, his evocative and haunting images have helped to create one of the most recognisable music imagery. In 2006, the release of Thom Yorke’s ‘Eraser’ record brought Stanley’s very distinctive artwork ‘London Views’ into the public eye once again.

For Spring / Summer '10, Stanley Donwood has collaborated with Oakley and reworked the Jupiter frame with the artwork adapted from the ‘London Views’ piece, which represented London being destroyed by a great fire and flood. Adding the op-art design to the new frames, he veers between propagandist graphics and introspective illustrations as a combination of deep personal and political emotions, and has exhibited his art to fan bases in London, Tokyo, Amsterdam, Barcelona, and Rotterdam.
