Rick Griffin (1944-1991)
A exhibit of the work of Rick Griffin opens June 24 at the Laguna Art Museum, http://www.lagunaartmuseum.org Rick Griffin (1944-1991), a cult figure, has had a significant impact on our culture overall. The exhibit includes 140 paintings, drawings, posters, album covers, and artifacts, surveys thirty years of work from the 1960s until his death in 1991.

Before Griffin begins to revel in the art and politics of the counterculture, he is a surfer. Griffin develops the well-known cartoon-strip character Murphy, which is regularly published in Surfer magazine, the preeminent surf magazine of the era. Griffin is renowned as a surfer artist when he arrives in San Francisco in 1966, just in time to earn a poster commission for the first Human Be-In, setting into motion the Summer of Love.

Creating a simple, yet powerful design for that event, he quickly makes a name for himself with his brilliant lettering, nineteenth-century graphics, breathtaking color combinations, and humorous approach to advertising motifs. His new media is the psychedelic rock poster and his artwork permeates urban cores, where emerging bands that he designs for, such as Jimi Hendrix and the Grateful Dead, give concerts.
