Colin Self has been a long standing friend of Marianne Faithfull since they first met in the 1960s. Colin has provided some of his wonderfully lyrical and dreamlike landscapes to illustrate the cover and booklet accompanying Marianne's next CD when she will be narrating verse by England's greatest poets.

More about Colin Self
Norfolk born, Colin attended the Slade School of Art in the early sixties arriving at the crucial moment Pop Art emerged in London. Identified as one of Pop Art’s exponents, Self exhibited at the influential Robert Fraser Gallery, along side Peter Blake, Richard Hamilton and Clive Barker. He has remained true to his Pop roots and sees potential in the everyday objects that surround us and calls himself a ‘hunter’, seeking out connections between objects he has selected out from the detritus of mass consumption. His work is fresh, immediate and frequently delivered with a punchline.
