Wes Wilson

Born in: 1937

United States

Wes Wilson is an American artist and one of the leading designers of psychedelic posters.

He is famous for designing posters for Bill Graham of The Fillmore in San Francisco. Wes Wilson invented a style that is now synonymous with the peace movement, psychedelic era and the 1960s.

His style, inspired by the Art Nouveau masters, took what was understood about promotional art and turned it inside-out. Nearly cryptic letters filled every available space, lines melted into lines, colors clashed... and the psychedelic poster was born. The love of art and nature eventually carried Wes Wilson away to the beautiful Ozarks foothills, where he still enjoys creating and discussing art and ideas.
