Lou Beach’s collages could be confused with a scene from Salvador Dali’s paintings. A strong narrative and surrealist feeling that led Lou to create some of the most famous album covers such as Everybody by Madonna or Dude Ranch by Blink 182. In a completely different register, Lou is coming up with a solo exhibition in Jack Fischer Gallery in Los Angeles from April 7th. “I have heard it said that anyone can make a collage and that it is child’s play, but I find it difficult; each work is a laborious task of discovery and invention with numerous mistakes, false starts, delusions, distractions and dead ends before the picture and its meaning reveals itself. My intention is always to create something poetic, but inevitably end up with a cartoon or fairy tale. I work in chaos.”

His combined reference points of Art Nouveau, underground culture and loud colour, creates truly inimitable illustrations.
