Lot Details
A Jimi Hendrix "Pinnacle" concert poster
The first printing of a poster designed by John Van Hamersveld for Hendrix's February 10, 1968 concert at the Shrine Auditorium in Los Angeles. Van Hamersveld was an important figure in the Southern California psychedelic community who also designed surf posters, including the iconic poster for Bruce Brown's The Endless Summer (1966). Contemporary artist Shepard Fairey modeled one of the images in his "Obey Giant" series on this poster, and later wrote about Van Hammersveld's design, "It's an illustration with the perfect balance of designed restraint and idiosyncratic, organic style. The image also, though highly stylized, conveys the essence of Jimi Hendrix" (I Heart Design: Remarkable Graphic Design Selected by Designers, Rockport: 2011).
18 7/8 x 27 in.
