About the event

The Muse Gallery presents Larry Smart RETRO-spective
First ever solo exhibition by iconic 60's pop artist Larry Smart, including Hendrix and Lennon silkscreen prints.  
Opening Night 22.06.2017, 6.30-9.00pm

Larry Smart RETRO-spective is the first ever solo exhibition by iconic 60's pop artist Larry Smart. Coinciding with the 50th anniversary of the Summer of Love, this exhibition of original paintings and prints is the first time that the artist's work has been brought together under one roof - in Larry's former Notting Hill neighbourhood.

The exhibition not only features Larry's famous and widely recognised images of 60's pop icons but also landscapes and topiary images, as well as mandala paintings lit by an associated lightshow based on the original UFO Club performances. Following a global quest for missing Larry's, the exhibition features works previously feared lost.

London's V&A Museum holds Larry Smart's Jimi Hendrix poster in its permanent collection and used his 'Kaleidoscope Eyes' image to publicise its recent 'Revolution: Records and Rebels 1966-1970' exhibition. For the first time both portraits, as well as a third of Bob Dylan, will be available as limited edition screenprints.

Larry Smart RETRO-spective revives the spirit of the Summer of Love in Portobello and aims to celebrate the work and life of Larry Smart and his role in British pop art history.
