Urs Amann

Urs Amann (born 1951) is a Swiss surrealist painter. He is mostly known as the painter of the cover art for several Klaus Schulze records, all in a style reminiscent of Salvador Dalí. He also illustrated the covers of many books, including some of his brother Jürg Amann, who is a Swiss writer. Urs Amann likes to qualify his work as "meta-realistic painting".
