Psych Icons - all together promo

Slacker Shack regular Dunstan Doodles has uploaded his new psychedelic music icons portraits onto his site. The twelve new pieces were recently exhibited in Manchester’s Northern Quarter and prints are already starting to sell well off the back of the show.

The portraits feature music icons from the golden age of psychedelia. Here’s the list in full – Grace Slick, Arthur Lee, Jimi Hendrix, Roky Erickson, Syd Barrett, Jim Morrison, Janis Joplin, John Lennon, Mama Cass, Donovan, Steve Hillage and Jerry Garcia.

Dunstan’s style involves combining illustration and collage techniques and layering individual elements of the portrait onto mountboard piece by piece. He works on commissions and sells a number of prints of icons from the worlds of music, film, tv, literature and sport.

All giclee prints from his new Psych Icons collection come in A3 size, printed on top quality FS Platinum Etching paper. There’s also an option to get your print mounted and/or get it framed.

You can take a peek at all twelve icons here

Dunstan has been specialising in portraiture for the past few years and the idea for his new Psych Icons exhibition came straight after finishing a series of Manchester Icons portraits early last year.

Fans of acts like Love, The Beatles, Jefferson Airplane, The Doors and the Grateful Dead and those ears deep in the swathes of new psychedelic music that’s currently back in vogue, will love the show.

The event is being held in the heart of Manchester’s Northern Quarter in the slick and spacious FOUNDATION COFFEE on Lever Street. The evening starts straight after work at 6pm and features DJs, acoustic sets from Control Of The Going, Cold Water Swimmers and The Cornelius Crane, and a well-stocked bar and cafe. It’s free entry and runs till 10pm.

Original portraits and collages will be available to buy on the night along with unframed and framed limited edition prints. Dunstan’s work can be viewed here.

Manc-Icons

Here’s a look at some of the Manchester Icons I’ve been creating portraits of over the past year. I have a few more finished now too (John Cooper Clarke, Les Dawson and Maxine Peake) and a couple more in the pipeline (Danny Boyle and Steve Coogan).

The vague plan is to exhibit them next summer somewhere in Manchester but in the meantime if you fancy a look at some of my other stuff or would like me to doodle for you, head over to Dunstan Doodles here.

Trawling through the internet tonight, looking for some new and exciting street art, I stumbled upon the work of Parisian street artist, Nosbe. Check out an awesome example of his work below:

Nosbe is well known on the the streets of Paris for his wild, psychedelic, intertwining designs and you can check out more of his work over on his fatcap page here.
