Sex, Rock And Roll And Optical Illusions

Victor Moscoso
Victor Moscoso
The 1960s are known as a decade of social and political unrest. Comics were undergoing their own revolution and no one epitomized underground comix and psychedelia more than Victor Moscoso, whose posters for such bands as The Grateful Dead, Big Brother & The Holding Company and the Steve Miller Blues Band, stand as enduring works of art and instantly recognizable icons of their time.

Moscoso (along with fellow artists such as Rick Griffin and Peter Max) revolutionized the poster aesthetic and defined the visual culture of a generation. Crumb invited Moscoso to join the Zap Comix collective in 1968, and Moscoso's work has appeared in every issue from Zap #2 to present.

His comix work contrasted with his fellow artists (such as Crumb and Gilbert Shelton) by his unique stylization, less confrontational point of view, hallucinatory visual rhythms, and wordless, dreamlike stories. Sex, Rock 'N' Roll & Optical Illusions is Victor Moscoso's first major, career-spanning retrospective, from his earliest poster work in 1966 to his most recent graphic experimentation, including many of his Zap Comix contributions and solo commix work, reproduced to a fine degree in black and white and colour. The Book has introductions by Steve Heller and Milton Glaser.
