Issue T
I was first introduced to psychedelic, New Age, and hippie imagery in high school by a band of Grateful Dead-loving, Volkswagen-driving, hippie classmates of mine. Each day, they would come to class wearing tattered brown corduroys covered in vintage fabric patches, Birkenstocks, hemp necklaces dripping with crystals, and tie-dyed Phish T-shirts with organic typography.

While I was never a fan of experimenting with psychedelic drugs, dancing around drum circles on the beach, or wearing hemp necklaces, I would be lying if I said that I wasn’t mesmerized by the bold, ultra-fluorescent colors and hand lettering on the tie dye shirts and posters. The freedom and looseness of line, hand-made aesthetic, and striking patterning that is so prevalent in psychedelic art has made a lasting effect on me since I was first exposed to it.

I must admit that my knowledge of psychedelic or New Age art is limited, and off the top of my head, I am only able to name a couple of artists who work within this mode, but it is hard to deny the influence and impact of psychedelic art on everything from contemporary art and design to graffiti.

It would have been easy to select a handful of artists who created psychedelic poster art in the 60's and 70's—or who still create it today—but being that we strive to take a unique approach with our themes, we chose a wide variety of artists and designers whose work might not be considered psychedelic, New Age or hippie-inspired at first glance, but who are still informed and influenced by the subculture, palette, and aesthetics of one of the most influential, yet hard to remember, eras in our history.
