Biography Mati Klarwein
Mati Klarwein is a painter of detailed fantastic imagery, termed psychedelic in its day, that found a place on album covers of music by Miles Davis, Santana, the Chambers Brothers, Earth, Wind & Fire, and others.

In 1948, during the war that resulted in the founding of Israel, Klarwein moved to Paris with his family, first attending the Ecole des Beaux-Arts and, in the winter of 1950, studying with Fernand Leger.
