For artist Mathieu Bitton, what you hear and what you see are one in the same. Colors and music notes have similar shades; lyrics and hand-drawn lines have similar emotional messages. Each genre of music in Bitton’s collection has its own visual world in his head – jazz takes on certain hues, while rock n’ roll is another vibrant texture completely. For Bitton, one simply does not exist without the other. And this special way of merging both mediums is what has lead Mathieu Bitton to be one of the music world’s most sought-after artsist, creating album covers and packaging, as well as videos, photographs, logos and more for some of the most iconic artists and records of the last century, in addition to earning him a Grammy nomination for his artistic achievement.Read More His vast and incredible body of work has seen him designing album art for a who’s who of musical history, including Prince, Lenny Kravitz (for whom Bitton serves as Creative Director and photographer), Miles Davis (most recently, he created the incredible packaging to the Bitches’ Brew 40th Anniversary Edition boxset), Marvin Gaye, Jane’s Addiction, Quincy Jones, James Brown, Bob Marley, Sting, Raphael Saadiq, Taylor Swift, Iggy Pop, Lou Reed, Dolly Parton and many more. If there’s an album cover that moves you, inspires you or impacts you, the odds are pretty high that Mathieu Bitton created it. His Lenny Kravitz documentary 'Looking Back On Love' was released January 2013.
