Celebrating the revolutionary & anarchic world of 60s graphic design, the Bamalama Gallery hosts ‘Bamalama Takes a Trip’ from 21 October - 21 December 2019.

Capturing the ideals, rhetoric and visions of the time in a graphic format, as distinctively as any of the music and fashions of the 60s, the show will feature a carefully curated selection of rare posters (with a mixture of not for sale & sale items) plus limited edition ‘Hapshash & The Coloured Coat’ prints by renowned graphic designers Nigel Waymouth & Michael English.

Hapshash’s ‘SAVE EARTH NOW’ design, last printed 20 years ago, has been especially re-released for the exhibition. The psychedelic design features delicate koi carp, a flock of fantastical birds, images from the Kama Sutra, Zen garden imagery and the Hindu goddess Kali, all in a mind blowing colour way of deep gold, sunshine yellow, spring green and ultramarine blue. The message is starkly simple and one that pauses people to think - this was a statement that was being spread over 50 years ago.

The focus on Hapshash continues with further limited edition screen prints of advertising posters for the legendary UFO club on Tottenham Court Road, The Marquee Club on Wardour Street, the original ‘Granny Takes a Trip’ fashion boutique on the Kings Road and Jimi Hendrix’s work on Track Records.

Visitors to the Bamalama Gallery will be greeted with an ever changing, and mind expanding, selection of vintage posters to buy as the celebration continues.

Due to the rare or limited nature of certain items once an item has been sold it will not be repeated.
