George E. Salisbury (born October 4, 1971) is a film and music video director and graphic designer based out of Oklahoma City, OK.



George Salisbury best is known for his work as the principal art director and music video director with the American rock band, The Flaming Lips.

Salisbury has also worked with The Starlight Mints, Stardeath and White Dwarfs, and BMX biking legend, Matt Hoffman. He officially holds the world's record for creating the most animated vaginas.

The Flaming Lips (1994-Present)

Both Salisbury and Wayne Coyne, lead singer of the Flaming Lips, are responsible for a distinct visual style that is the band's trademark for both their live shows and the album cover designs and packaging. One of Salisbury's earliest contributions to the Flaming Lips' live shows, is the "Flames of Destiny" flaming cymbal. Salisbury orchestrated and executed the feat by filling an inverted cymbal on a stand with alcohol and then lighting it on fire while the band played in the background.

His eye is featured along with the tongue of J. Michelle Martin-Coyne on the cover of Yeah, I Know It's a Drag... But Wastin' Pigs Is Still Radical EP in 1991.

Salisbury, along with Wayne Coyne and Bradley Beesley, co-directed Christmas on Mars a full-length feature film released in 2008.
