Somewhere Over the Rainbow by Neon Park
Native of the San Francisco Bay Area, Neon Park became indelibly associated with major Los Angeles bands and musicians for whom he painted an array of astonishing surrealist visual puns for album covers. A thorough overview of his career has been long overdue. This joint effort by Last Gasp of San Francisco and La Luz de Jesus Gallery of Los Angeles has finally produced a book that pays homage to one of the great painters of rock’n’roll’s golden age.
