Pink Floyd Wall Art is Inspired by Pink Floyd’s Album Dark side of the Moon. The Album was released in 1973. The Dark Side of the Moon sold ridiculously well at the time of its release. In fact, it still sells extremely well. As the vinyl market continues to make a resurgence,
HISTORY BEHIND THE ARTWORK
Record Label EMI reacted with confusion when faced with the cover designs for Atom Heart Mother and Obscured By Clouds, as they had expected to see traditional designs which included lettering and words.
For The Dark Side of the Moon, keyboardist Richard Wright instructed them to come up with something “smarter and more classy”.
According to an interview in “Rolling Stone Magazine,” the prism design was inspired by a photograph that Thorgerson had seen during a brainstorming session with Powell:
The artwork was created by their associate, George Hardie. Hipgnosis offered the band a choice of seven designs, but all four members agreed that the prism was by far the best. The final design depicts a glass prism dispersing light into color. The design’s sybolism represents three elements; the band’s stage lighting, the album lyrics, and Wright’s request for a “simple and bold” design.
The light band emanating from the prism on the album cover has six colors. Indigo was missing compared to the traditional division of the spectrum into red, orange, yellow, green, blue, indigo and violet. Inside the sleeve were two posters and two pyramid-themed stickers. One poster bore pictures of the band in concert, overlaid with scattered letters to form PINK FLOYD, and the other an infrared photograph of the Great Pyramids at Giza, created by Powell and Thorgerson.
