Feb 3 - April 9, 2020 - Brian Burns - ‘It was only Rock and Roll’

Being a student in London in the 1960s was, in retrospect, very exciting. At the time it was busy, confusing, fascinating, and a lot of fun. Universities and Colleges were a big part of launching the bands of the day, and drawing and producing the posters for dances/concerts, in a time without the internet, was very basic. The creative use of one or two colour posters was economically essential. Producing 'rock star' portrait posters for sale was quite lucrative too (for a student), as posters became the  new art on peoples' walls. Over the years I have continued to create graphic portraits of some 'icons'; the challenge of choosing the right image to epitomize and respect the person and the time is always daunting. I hope you enjoy them.
