Known by his work with rock band Radiohead for whom he has been producing album covers and promotional materials since 1994, Stanley Donwood’s illustrations often touch on socio-political issues.
Stanley Donwood’s experimentations with new mediums and techniques have led him to create both impressive large-scale works and exquisite fine art printmaking.
Stanley Donwood has won two Grammy Awards for Best Recording Package with his Radiohead work on the band's Amnesiac cover and Best Special Limited Edition Package for In Rainbows.
Donwood has also published a number of short stories and picture books.
He lives in Brighton, England.
