An elaborate living tableau by visionary American artist, Steven Arnold.
Among Steven Arnold’s first jobs as an artist was to create posters for the influential Matrix nightclub in San Francisco’s Fillmore district. As early as 1966, Arnold’s posters were seen on the streets of San Francisco, advertising musicians like The Charlatans, Steve Miller Blues Band, and Quicksilver Messenger Service. Furthered by these bands and others, such as Jefferson Airplane, The Doors, and Country Joe and the Fish, The Matrix went on to be credited as the birthplace of the “San Francisco sound” of the psychedelic 1960s.
