Mati (Abdul) Klarwein

Andy Warhol said that Mati Klarwein was his “favorite painter.” Indeed, artists, musicians and actors have collected his works since the 1960’s.

Klarwein’s work first came to the notice of the world when Carlos Santana chose his work for the cover of the LP “Abraxas.”. Also memorable was his LP Cover art for Miles Davis’ “Bitches Brew”.

It was probably the vibrant, colored landscapes and richly populated scenes that convey the process of drinking in all of the surroundings and sensory detail that are expressed in his work which attracted the psychedelic generation. His natural temperament led him to this heightened sense of reality, and his talent to express it so well and so compellingly.
