Barney Bubbles was the nickname used by English artist, graphic designer and music video director Colin Fulcher who during the '70s and early '80s was responsible for a large amount of visual arts, mainly music promo material and album covers, for bands like Hawkwind, Ian Dury & The Blockheads or Elvis Costello & The Attractions among many others. His influential work is characterized primarily by geometric elements and vivid colours, although the body of his work is quite eclectic. Unfortunately he committed suicide in 1983, due it seems to financial worries, including unpaid taxes and reducing assingments, but also to severe conduct disorders.
