- Aldridge is a British artist, specialised in illustration and graphic design. His work was predominantly focused on surealism and had a very psychedelic style: ‘it’s very seductive, going into that magic world where any image you conjure up can hang out and converse with you, but I’ve always found my way back to reality’. His career began working as an illustrator for Sunday Times. In addition he worked on some penguin book covers which later led him to become the Art Director for Penguin. In 1968, he founded a graphic design firm called INK which were responsible for famous album covers in the 60s such as The Beatles. There has been a retrospective of his work in 2008 at the Design Museum in London.
