    "[Illustrators like me] are trying to walk the same path [as the 1960s psychedelic artists] but we're trying to improve it a bit more, according to the possibilities that the present era brings us."

  • The heyday of psychedelic art and design spanned but a few years from the rump end of the 1960s, and yet its influence continues to resonate strongly, with a new breed of artists and designers drawing on the classic works of the genre in fresh and exciting ways. Unlike psychedelic music - which was rolled into the mainstream - psychedelic art remained very much a part of the counter culture, never gaining true acceptance by the established art community of the day. As 1960s psychedelic artist John Hurford recalls, "It was frowned upon by the art establishment, in much the same way as freestyle graffiti was in the 1980s."

The 1960s psychedelic art was particularly note worthy. These forms of psychedelic art soon spread worldwide. There were many poster artists who used this style of art to create posters for rock groups. These artists used the basics of psychedelic art – the contrasting colors and elaborate detailed forms. The 60s psychedelic art movement soon became a part of the counterculture of the 1960s. This counterculture was all about people that defied the traditional norms of the society. Psychedelic drugs were used by people to achieve the temporary state that caused changes in one’s mood and behavior. Psychedelia soon became a common feature in the 60’s. This term was used to describe not only the art, but also music and fashion. One can also see this term being associated with the hippy culture of the 1960’s.
