1 DAY

We’re leaving in a few hours.
Tomorrow morning we’ll say goodbye to Italy and we’ll arrive in San Francisco in the afternoon.
We’re so excited I’m forgetting my frightening of flying…
Just to remind You, here is a detailed plan of our Tour called DARK NOUVEAU.

The following events are a celebration of “DARK NOUVEAU,” a return to the roots of poster creation.
DARK NOUVEAU evokes equally the fin de siècle style of artists like Toulouse-Lautrec, Mucha, Klimt and the artists known under the banner of “Art Nouveau” and and 1960’s San Francisco Psychedelia – and operates here as a manifesto of reinvention and revision – aimed at connecting to the poster movement of the Decadent Period to the Belle Epoque and folding it into the Psychedelic Period to the present modern global silkscreen movement.

– First we’ll be at The Rock Poster Society’s Festival of Posters 2009 (TRPS) at the Hall of Flowers • Golden Gate Park • Saturday, October 10 • 10 am to 6 pm
