More Abour Gerald Scarfe
Gerald Scarfe is an internationally renowned illustrator and cartoonist, whose award-winning work has featured in newspapers and magazines, in the theatre, on television and on film, for forty years. However it was Scarfe’s collaboration with rock legend Roger Waters and the musical icons Pink Floyd that was to produce the most enduring musical multi-media concept in rock history and one that resulted in a 19 million-unit selling double album and later, a feature film directed by Sir Alan Parker.
Originally commissioned by Pink Floyd to produce a series of animated sequences for the band’s Wish You Were Here tour, Scarfe went on to design the album art, tour animation sequences and models for Pink Floyd’s 1979 multi-platinum selling album The Wall. Scarfe was also seminal to the later feature film, where he contributed a 15-minute animated sequence and various other visual elements. The unforgettable imagery that Scarfe created, including the characters of ‘Pink’ and ‘Teacher’ endure as an intrinsic part of Pink Floyd’s visual identity and this work – partnering Scarfe and Waters, ranks among the most powerful and visceral concepts ever in the history of rock.
