Katy Perry’s Teenage Dreams cover art by Will Cotton

Katy Perry's Teenage Dreams cover art by Will Cotton has been unveiled

As I told you yesterday, Katy Perry has revealed the official cover art for her new album Teenage Dreams that hits shelves August 24, 2010.

The Teenage Dreams cover art is created by New York-based artist Will Cotton and features a barely-covered Katy floating on a cloud of candyfloss.

The portrait was unveiled at in the artist’s Lower East Side, Manhattan studio with Katy Perry present at the event.

According to the source, Katy first contacted the painter five months ago to share her enthusiasm for his work. It was kismet or destiny as Cotton, a confirmed Katy fan, had long considered making her the subject of one of his confectionary landscape paintings. Subsequently, the resulting portrait was chosen to grace the cover of her upcoming album.

Cotton’s work also serves as the inspiration for the visuals in Perry’s ‘California Gurls’ music video – with his trademark cotton candy clouds, candy stick forests, and gingerbread cabins prominent features of the fantasy scenery.

California Gurls video director Matthew Cullen and Motion Theory embraced the idea, enlisting Cotton as Artistic Director on the project, to recreate the artist’s images for the video.

Cotton recreated some of the work personally, including creating the board game played by Snoop Dogg in the video, and worked with set designer Teri Whittaker to create scenery based on his artwork.

The day I found Will Cotton, I knew I wanted to live in his cinematic cotton candy world,” Katy Perry said. “A fantastically art-directed music video and one piece of timeless album artwork later, I can proudly say I am more than a fan. Will has been a sweetheart every step of the way and always open to collaborative ideas. I’m so happy to have discovered his candy-land, and so excited about our creative future together.”

While he does not consider himself a portrait artist, Cotton has depicted a few notable figures in his paintings, such as Tom Ford and Marie-Chantal of Greece.

My collaboration with Katy started out as a mutual admiration society,” Will Cotton echoed Katy Perry. “I’m delighted that my paintings are the inspiration for this video. My work is about creating a utopia where all desire is fulfilled all the time, but where pleasure and delight can turn dark and dystopic. Katy embodies the archetypes that I look for in a subject. It was thrilling to work with her and to see her inhabit my landscapes.”

The Teenage Dreams cover art looks very sweet and sexy. Do you like it?
