The Art of Moonalice
An exhibit of Rock Posters created for the band Moonalice.
Moonalice is a band that commissions a poster for every gig and gives them away for free. Since the band’s formation in 2007, Moonalice has produced a unique series of almost 550 original gig posters with artwork from over 20 artists.
Moonalice posters feature artwork from many of the legendary poster artists of the psychedelic 60′s as well as today’s top rock poster artists. Moonalice is a band that lets poster artists do what they do best – make art! Unencumbered by standard constraints, Moonalice posters are as diverse as the artists who create them.
On Sunday, October 28, 2012, Moonalice proudly presents their 2nd poster show at the Brooklyn Bowl. The full series of Moonalice posters will be on display and available for purchase at this FREE East Coast event. Many Moonalice poster artists will be attending the event in-person.

The Montage Art of Winston Smith — Volume 3
The trilogy that started with Artcrime and Act Like Nothing’s Wrong is at last complete. Winston Smith’s third volume of hand-carved collage art is a rich compendium of “old school” cut and paste compositions that juxtapose traditional Americana images with insightful visual twists. Dinosaurs ravage suburbia while dodos frolic with Gibson girls. Guaranteed to shock and awe. Smith’s work has been featured in Playboy, Spin, and The New Yorker, as well as on album covers for Dead Kennedys, Green Day, DOA, George Carlin, and more. With forward by Ralph Steadman and introduction by Carlo McCormick.

The Montage Art of Winston Smith — Volume 1
“It is impossible to pin down who’s the ‘best’ collage artist in the universe, but Winston Smith would certainly leap to mind (and then blow that mind repeatedly). Most of his images are like a punch in the face. There must be ten zillion people doing collages for everything from Exxon ads to fanzines to street posters, so the competition is stiff; but Smith’s work has stood out, glaringly, for the last 15 years as the most consistently startling, meaningful and technically accomplished in this bastard field. It’s high time Smith became a rich, famous artist rather than the best-kept secret of the underground.” — unknown
By its very nature, the medium of collage demands the appropriation of many and spanerse images. These images are the works of wonderful artists who produced work from the 1880s through the 1950s. Many were well-known in their field. Many worked in near anonymity. All of them contributed to the vast visual galaxy of cultural icons that have enhanced and defined our civilization. Acknowledging their classic work is an honor, since without their efforts this volume could not exist.
Act Like Nothing’s Wrong includes 95 pages of the collages including one entitled His Most Holy and Orthodox Reverend Ivan Stang, High Pope of the Church of the SubGenius. With forward by Dirk Dirksen and introduction by Suzanne Stefanac.
