London - An oil painting of an astronaut featured on the cover of White Lies' album "Big TV" has won an award for 2013's best album artwork.
The painting, Michael Kagan's 2010 work Pilot 2, won the Best Art Vinyl Award for 2013.
Paul Jackson's artwork for Replenish Repeat by Dan Le Sac Vs Scroobius Pip came in second and Leif Podhajsky's work for Bonobo's The North Borders came in third, Gigwise reports.
"The band was very sincere and I could tell immediately how connected they felt to the painting and how it was important for them to use it," said Michael Kagan, whose painting won for White Lies' Big TV. Kagan added that it was a "very exciting experience" having Pilot 2 and three of his other works included as part of the Big TV sleeve and CD booklet.
Andrew Heeps, the Best Art Vinyl Award founder, said it was "interesting to see that the public prefers such a traditional artistic technique as oil on canvas."
Other nominations for the award included artwork by Damien Hirst and Vanessa Da Silva and records by artists such as Elton John, Sir Paul McCartney, and Daft Punk, The Independent reports.
