Terry Pastor is an artist and printmaker. He is best known for his iconic album artwork for David Bowie's "Hunky Dory" and "Ziggy Stardust".
While these albums usually grab the headlines, in reality, this work is just one element of Terry's career. His credits include album covers for the Beach Boys, Alex Harvey, The Sweet, Carl Palmer, Soft Machine and many other artists. Terry's credits also include book covers for bestselling authors Arthur C Clark, Jeffrey Archer, Mickey Spillane, Colleen McCullough, Len Deighton, Brian Aldiss, Michael Crichton, Ed McBain and Leslie Thomas.
Over the years, Terry's 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 worldwide, including Roman Polanski and Roman Ford Coppola. Over the past ten years, Terry has worked mainly using digital media.
His work also incorporates traditional airbrush techniques, especially when 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). Also included in the long list of clients is British fashion designer Sir Paul Smith; and a collaboration with photographer Glen Luchford in America for the Gucci Spring campaign.
The Formento x Pastor collaboration is a marvellous marriage between pop art and the romantic and otherworldly photography of Formento & Formento.
