The art of Dennis Larkins ranges from retro-kitsch paintings of multi-dimensional landscapes to his legendary and iconic series of Grateful Dead concert posters. Larkins' images were forever burned into the pop psyche by the groundbreaking stage monoliths he created for promoter Bill Graham. At last, here is a definitive collection of Larkins' works -- four decades of his creative growth and expression distilled in to a gorgeous, full-color hardcover. Startling Art is an in-depth look at an artist immersed in the visual vernacular of pop surrealism, uniquely drawn from a life lived in the trenches of pop culture. Foreword by Peter Golding. Hardcover, color.
"I consider Dennis' work way up with the rest of them and there aren't many! He may be the unsung hero of the rock art world." -Peter Golding, rock art collector, fashion designer
"Dennis is one of the best kept secrets in the industry. His stage designs for probably the most important series of stadium concerts ever were excellent in every sense of the word." -Baron Wolman, legendary rock photographer
