About the Artist:
If you’ve browsed the concert poster industry of Pacific Northwest from the 1980s and 1990s you’ve seen the name Mike King.
King came from the Portland, OR area playing in bands in the 1980s and making posters for shows in exchange for admission to them. King’s drawings and paintings continue to transcend space and time.
After 55 years, from the Afghan Whigs to John Lee Hooker to Nirvana to Slayer to Sun Ra to ZZ Top, King continues to turn out roughly 100 posters a year, now as a resident of Brooklyn. He’s made over 5,000 posters in his career with no signs of slowing down.
His work has been featured in the Experience Music Project in Seattle, the Museum of Design in Atlanta, the Bold Hype Gallery in New York City, and Gallery 1988 in Los Angeles. You can see more of his work in Maximum Plunder, a hardcover coffee table book which contains images of over 1,000 poster designs of his. You can see more of his work online through his website, Crash America.
