Czech Contributes to Coldplay Album Cover
Although Chris Martin, frontman of the British band Coldplay, deliberated long and hard, in the end he chose graphic artist and painter Míla Fürstová.
Her works, which developed in collaboration with the British musicians over the course of a year and a half, appear not only on the cover of the new album, but also in the booklet and on gift items offered by the band on its website.
Míla Fürstová, a native of the eastern Moravian town of Přerov, has been living in Great Britain since the mid-1990s. She studied fine arts, and is currently focusing on the technique of etching. Her works can be found in Queen Elisabeth II’s art collection or in the Victoria and Albert Museum in London. In 2009 she became the first foreigner and, at the same time, youngest member of the Royal West of England Academy in Bristol.
