This MASSIVELY SIZED Day-glo ink Jimi Hendrix Original Silkscreen Poster was printed in 1968 by Dream Machine in Philadelphia. The design was produced by artist Larry Smart and it looks amazing both in normal daylight and under black light (see photo).


Smart obviously admired Hendrix as a musician and in this poster he makes a reference to Jimi’s song “Fire” by framing Hendrix in flames. He also alludes to when Hendrix set his guitars on fire during his performances. 


Sized at 36 X 47 1/2" this enormous work of art is the centerpiece for an entire gallery wall proudly exhibiting the soul and spirit of Jimi Hendrix. During 1967 and 1968 Larry Smart also created iconic silkscreen images of John Lennon Bob Dylan Arthur Brown and Frank Zappa. This Hendrix piece is sure to attract attention in our auction being the FIRST of this series we’ve ever offered!
