Never miss another 'Alan Aldridge' show
The Man With Kaleidoscope Eyes: Alan Aldridge
This exhibition will cover Aldridge's career to date, from the early 60s when his whirling designs refreshed the sombre tone of Penguin book covers, to his collaborations with The Beatles and their Apple record company, through to serving as creative director to the original Hard Rock Cafe. Commissions from Andy Warhol, The Rolling Stones, Pink Floyd, Elton John and The House of Blues will also be on display alongside photographs, sketch books and illustrations from his seminal children's books.

Alan Aldridge embodied the spirit of the 60s and 70s. His evocative, psychedelic images epitomised the feeling and art of an era. As The Beatles lead an unstoppable assault on the global charts, it was Aldridge's designs and visual identity that defined The Beatles image and music in a changing world. Still busy creating today – he was responsible for the look of the House of Blues in Los Angeles, Aldridge is an artist, an illustrator, a graphic designer, art director and film maker. He masterminded the seminal art book The Beatles Illustrated Lyrics and designed Andy Warhol's iconic Chelsea Girls film poster.
