Who Are the Five GRAMMY Award Nominees for Best Album Art?

Michael Amzalag & Mathias Augustyniak

Nominated For: Björk Biophilia (Released October 10, 2011)

Previous Projects: Collaborations with Kanye West, Madonna, Stella McCartney, Pierre Huyghe, and Calvin Klein

Michael Amzalag and Mathias Augustyniak together make up the creative duo, M/M Paris. Based out of France, the multi-faceted designers have worked with a wide range of musicians and fashion designers on some of the most memorable ad campaigns and products of our time. They also work with many contemporary artists and have held exhibitions in Japan, Sweden, and England.

The album art for Björk's Biophilia album was based on a photo shoot with photographers Inez and Vinoodh, where Björk was captured wearing a vibrant orange wig behind a black background. The white ornaments floating around her are superimposed with after-effects. The combination of the photo shoot and art direction later inspired Bjork's video for the track titled "Moon" off of Biophilia, in addition to the tablet app she released with the album.
