It's been a lifetime dream of Emek's to work with one of his all time hero's; the legendary artist Stanley Mouse. Mouse, "The man who drew the face on Rock Music", is one of the most famous artists in the history of Rock Posters. He helped start it all.
Stanley Mouse, born in 1940, created some of the most distinctive and enduring images in rock music, his sophisticated yet irreverent Nouveau style adorns countless album covers and concert posters. Arriving in San Francisco's Haight-Ashbury in 1965, the eve of the summer of love. It was a time of untamed passion, peace and love amidst war. Somewhere between these extremities, a new, groundbreaking style of art was born, and Mouse was at the epicenter.
Mouse immersed himself in the free-flowing culture and music of the times. He visualized psychedelic images and transcended them into art. He created many of the all time classic posters for rock shows at the Avalon and Fillmore.
He dreamed up and designed iconic imagery for the Grateful Dead, Janis Joplin, Steve Miller Band, Jefferson Airplane, The Rolling Stones, Paul McCartney, Jimi Hendrix, and Journey among many others, expressing in each of his paintings the hope and magic of the Sixties. His art was an attribution to the period, a symbol of the absorbing and exciting subculture that was forming.
" If I were to pick half a dozen of the definitive 1960's people, Stanley Mouse would be one of them"
- Bill Graham
