The evolution of the rock poster as an art form began in San Francisco in the mid 1960s , in the hippie hey-day . as artists were commissioned to create affordable advertising for concert events took the opportunity to break free from the confines of commercial poster design . with vivid colors & fluid lettering . but there was much more of a 'serious' art influence than was perhaps recognized at the time . Much of it was simply creativity uleashed by the so-called ' hippie artists ' , with the best of art from another era , melded into the hyper-modern world of their own . with the influence from recent art school attendees leading them to a heady mixture of the styles of long-forgotten artists of another time . Much like the furniture and clothing and antiques and collectibles of the time were rescued 'castoffs' from an unfashionable late Victorian and into Edwardian age . with the art styles of the era, the same applied . Old treasures which had become a 'drug on the market' , and even an embarrassment to 'real' art dealers, were rediscoverd and given pride of place to an entire new generation . In particular, the influence of French Belle Epoque styles, and Art Nouveau figures Mucha . Toulouse-Lautrec . and Cheret . began to dominate . notably through the use of lettering as a prominent compositional element, but also with nouveau lines and the fluid melding of text into design . of ethereal maidens and, in 20th century commercial art, unique to the Art Nouveau world and to the hippie art of the 60s, through full-blooded . and full-bodied . curvaceous women . The color separations of an earlier era were perhaps never duplicated; but the psychedelic, or ' neon ', ' dayglo ' colors more than made up for that, and brought a freshness to the curving neo-nouveau lines which remains unique in the annals of art to this day . The result of this 1960s intense exploration of positive and negative space led to the eventual creation of psychedelic imagery portrayed in the ' vibrating ' colors, reflective of the psychedlic experience . ' High Art ' explores both the creation of psychedelia and the imagery born of this movement . Among the major protagonists, it features both the Avalon and Fillmore ballrooms . the entertainment meccas born of genius Bill Graham, who commissioned the art as advertisement, perhaps not fully realizing at first that it would become iconic . and collectible . in its own right . as well as the UFO Club in London . and more obscure pockets, who were aware of the psychedelic movement . this art also widely influenced local artists who did work for many of the famed 'copycat' clubs, such as the Retinal Circus in Vancouver, and a whole host of others .
