At our June show, one of our favorite long time vendors, “Microdot Man” of MicroDot MindWear, brought 30-40 rare and original, blacklight psychedelic art posters from the late 60s – and they were bought up like crazy! Very popular with bands and the youth culture in the 1960s and early 70s, the posters tried to visually represent the spiritual experiences young people were seeking in a very turbulent era. The style was influenced by curvilinear calligraphy found in Art Nouveau and the bright, intense colors and abstract patterns of of the Pop art movement. Jimi Hendrix, The Grateful Dead, The Who, and Janice Joplin were among the superstars of psychedelic music. For more information on Psychedelia and the Psychedelic movement, go to this link.
