This Guy is My New Favorite Artist!






One of my all-time favorite art mediums' is the rock concert poster; ever since the 1960's when these bright & garish posters lined the Haight-Ashbury district loudly promoting such bands as The Grateful Dead, Jefferson Airplane, and Quicksilver Messenger Service, these artworks have become just as important as the music it so beautifully represents.

Melbourne Australia's Ken Taylor truly takes this medium to new heights; the vivid colors, fantastic subject matter and mind-blowing font work make him one of the top names in rock poster design today. Ken's posters are available for purchase here.
