Terry Pastor is an artist and print maker who publishes his own work, but it is more than likely that he is probably best known for his iconic album artwork for David Bowie’s Hunky Dory and Ziggy Stardust.
While it is these albums that usually grab the headlines, in reality this work is just one element of Terry Pastor’s career. His credits include album covers for the Beach Boys, Alex Harvey, The Sweet, Carl Palmer, Soft Machine and many other artistes. Given the similarity between album covers and book covers, it is no surprise to find that Terry Pastor’s credits include covers for best selling authors Arthur C Clark, Jeffrey Archer, Mickey Spillane, Colleen McCullough, Len Deighton, Brian Aldiss, Michael Crichton, Ed McBain and Leslie Thomas.
Over the years this work has won him many accolades including two prestigious Art Director of America awards and a Playboy magazine award.
His paintings feature in private collections around the world, including those of Roman Polanski and Roman Ford Coppola (the son of Francis Ford Cuppola) and he has gallery representation in Japan, Milan, and New York.
Over the past 10 years Terry has worked mainly using digital media, although some of his work also incorporates traditional airbrush technique, mainly when he enjoys collaborating with other artists and photographers. His client list includes Homme magazine, Dutch designers and art collective “The Fool”, Simon Posthuma and Marijke Koger, (who painted the mural on the facade of The Beatles’ Apple offices in Baker Street). Sir Paul Smith British fashion designer, plus his most recent collaboration with photographer Glen Luchford in America for the Gucci Spring campaign.
