    Default Artist behind Fair Warning cover painting

    While we're waiting patiently for news on phantom Van Halen album, here's a couple links about the Canadian artist who's painting, The Maze was used on the bands' "Fair Warning" album. Very interesting character, indeed.

    I posted sometime back that I was best freinds growing up with William Kurelek's son, they lived in Toronto/Canada and he passed away I think around 1977.

    Their were always lots of paintings in his studio in the basement, and I am sure I saw the original painting of "The Maze" when I was a kid.

    Fast forward years later and when I got into VH and Fair Wairning came out, I remember being drawn to the album cover and years later found out who it was.

    William Kurelek's daughter Cynthia is married to Paul Rogers (Bad Company,Queen)...

    William Kurelek is a very famous Canadian artist, their is a museum in Niagara Falls Canada dedicated to his work.

    The Maze painting I believe was donated to a museum somewhere in the UK, only parts of the the painting make up VH Fairwairning album cover.
