2. Lady Gaga - ARTPOP
Lady Gaga enlisted Jeff Koons to design the album artwork for her latest album, ARTPOP. The result is an artistic and cultural masterpiece. The background is a collage of two famous works of art: Gian Lorenzo Bernini’s ‘Apollo and Daphne’ and Botticelli’s ‘The Birth of Venus.’ A giant statue of Gaga is in the middle, forefront of the collage symbolizing Venus herself. In between her legs, she is holding one of Koons’ classic gazing balls. The album cover represents the transcendence of music. Although this album is new, I have a feeling it will go down as one of the best album covers of all time.
