Are you old enough to remember the age of vinyl? Then you know that in those days record covers were more than just an elegant wrapping. The Lucerne illustrator, painter and rock guitarist Mart Meyer wanted to find out what old record covers have got to tell us. The answer can be seen in large format oil paintings which give evidence of the creative quality of these covers and their relevance to the observer of any generation. They were statements which signified an affiliation to a group, in short: they moulded juvenile identity and in this respect they are as up to date as ever.
