Rights management company Paidas Management has been named as the global licensing agent for record cover artist Ioannis, who has created over 300 album covers for some of the biggest and best known musical acts.
Ioannis has designed record covers, singles and merchandise for such groups as the Rolling Stones, Lynyrd Skynyrd, Bon Jovi, Allman Brothers Band, Styx, Blue Oyster Cult, King Crimson Quiet Riot and many more.
