GARY GRIMSHAW - GRANDE - THE AMERICAN BARBER - PROOF ! THIS IS AN ARTIST PROOF - One of very few in the world ! This is the first image in the series. A very elegant, early Grimshaw work that combines elements of Art Nouveau, Op Art, and psychedelia. This is the poster that inspired this series, but beyond that, if one is to start a Grimshaw series, one must begin with a self portrait of Gary with his third eye. This print is a single color (black) on an off yellow paper made in Niles, Mich. It's 19 x 25 in. and screen printed at Dunwell Drygoods in Hamtramck.

The Gary Grimshaw Memorial Series is a limited run (editions of only 100), large (avg. 18 x 24 in.), silkscreen prints showcasing the works of Detroit based visual artist Gary Grimshaw. Most known for his psychedelic poster art for the Grande Ballroom in the late sixties, Gary's work is the visual essence of Detroit's rock and roll underground. But his work wasn't limited to the Grande or rock and roll. He was also very active in the underground press scene in Michigan as well as California, contributing to publications like The Fifth Estate, Ann Arbor Sun, San Francisco Oracle, and the Berkeley Tribe. He also created countless logos and designs for many local businesses and artists. Working very closely with the Gary Grimshaw Legacy Foundation and Gary's wife, Laura, the artist and printers ensure this series retains a well made, high quality standard that will not only meet the approval of you the collector, but more importantly, that Gary would have approved as well. The artist has made over two hundred fliers over the years for local and non-local shows / events, and is the principal restorative artist for the Gary Grimshaw Memorial Series, as well as countless other designs, logos, and branding for many local institutions and independent organizations.
