Jimmy James Kouratoras is an award-winning Auckland based artist whose work depicts a rich, almost decadent examination of contemporary culture. Babies mix with dragons, trees-of-life are hung with skater girls, and there is a strong impression of the artist’s Greek and Maori heritage.
Jimmy has added something very special to our lodge in the middle of Pureora Forest. His art is much more than decoration. It has meaning and depth that people get.
After viewing his amazing Pou style images I contacted Jimmy about doing some art for our label .
We presented him with the music and he came up with an amazing, surreal piece of work. We were totally blown away with the colours, how closely the images matched the feel of the music and the beautiful psychedelic theming.
The art is a perfect accompaniment for the album and will help immensely when released around the World – now to get it on large scale vinyl!
