'Leif Podhajsky has put together what is arguably the most unforgettable album cover portfolio of the last few years.'
"Leif Podhajsky's instantly recognisable album artwork has become a beacon of success for the likes of Lykke Li, Tame Impala and new breakthroughs Young Magic. His artwork has been propped up on desks by 'Late Night' hosts Fallon and Letterman. His success, his Midas touch is rare in the industry."
"Leif Podhajsky creates designs for leftfield labels including Warp and Sub Pop. Get up close and it’s all trippy pixelated patterns."
It's Nice That
"Come dip your toes into the psychedelic stream of Leif Padhajsky’s imagination for some striking abstractions of nature – mirrored vistas, engulfing waves, rippling, melting cosmic landscapes."
"Connecting visual streams between the forces of nature, psychedelia and altered realities. His stunning and surreal blog, MELT collates his inspirations from lush wavey-witchy electronic music to influential artworks, often tipping into the world of the occult and mysticism."
"Whether he's colliding nature with space or exploring the human body through photo experiments, Podhajsky's multi-disciplined output resembles an encyclopedia of the metaphysical. He also has the precise artistic skill set to be a master at the dying medium of album art."
