With its bold colours and its psychedelic look-and-feel, Keiichi Tanaami’s work is quickly recognizable. Over the years – he started working as an artist in the sixties – he produced an amazing amount of art pieces that have been shown worldwide.

A lesser known aspect of his work, more illustrative, is what he did for record sleeves. The covers you’ll see in this post are only a part of his work, but you can see more on his website.
