Type of Work
Psychedelic Art Movement began in the mid-1960s and had an effect not only on music but also on many aspects of popular culture.
This includes lifestyle, clothing, language, art, literature and philosophy.
The name “psychedelic” refers to drugs that were popular with the youth culture of the time. (The psychedelic is a concept whose name is derived from the ancient Greek words, translating to “reveal the mind”)
Visual styles of psychedelic art include curvaceous shapes inspired by Art Nouveau, illegible hand-drawn type and intense optical-color vibrations inspired by the pop art movement.
Festivals and music concerts were a prominent feature in the 1960s, and musicians such as Jimi Hendrix, The Grateful Dead, The Who, Janis Joplin were the super stars at the time.
