Moonalice proudly presents the short documentary film series “PAPER, INK and ROCK ‘n ROLL – A History of Posters”, that will bring you closer to the many Moonalice Poster Artists and their work.
The fifth installment in the short-film series features poster artist Wes Wilson, who is generally acknowledged as the father of the ’60s rock concert poster. He was born Robert Wesley Wilson on July 15, 1937 in Sacramento, California and helped pioneer what is now known as the psychedelic poster. His style of filling all available space with lettering, of creating fluid forms made from letters, and using flowing letters to create shapes became the standard that most psychedelic artists followed. It helped put the “psychedelic” in the art. Today, Wes Wilson creates paintings, but still occasionally does new posters or new art of interest.
Moonalice director Jay Blakesberg & Co-Producers Blakesberg & Alexandra Fischer invite fans of Moonalice & Poster Art to enjoy a personal look at the history and stories that surround the poster artists in the Moonalice tribe. Keep a look out for future parts of this film series including Dennis Loren & Carolyn Ferris to name a few
