Retinal Circus

The Retinal Circus Poster series was born in the sparking bayside city of Vancouver in the mid 1960's, when the culture was fast becoming shaped by the same psychedelic movement that was brewing in Seattle, San Francisco and Los Angeles. In early 1967, Retinal Circus, a club previously called Dante's Inferno, began booking blues, rock, psychedelic, and rockabilly acts to perform inside its divvy basement walls. Eric Fisher, Steve Seymour and Frank Lewis were the artists that contributed to the Retinal Circus posters, sharing similar distinct, colorful, eye-popping styles. After hosting some of the biggest names in music, including the Velvet Underground, Muddy Waters and the Charlatans, the venue, which had become a local favorite, was closed at the end of 1968.
