Psychedelic rock art is the perfect way to add a touch of color and personality to your home or office.

The Beatles – Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band

The Beatles’ album Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band is considered one of the most influential albums of all time, and its artwork is just as iconic. The album cover, designed by Peter Blake and Jann Haworth, features a collage of life-sized wax models of the band members, as well as a number of celebrities and public figures. The effect is both eye-catching and psychedelic, perfectly capturing the spirit of the times.

The Rolling Stones – Their Satanic Majesties Request is the sixth British and eighth American studio album by the English rock band The Rolling Stones, released on 8 December 1967 by Decca Records in the United Kingdom and London Records in the United States. It was a psychedelic album that tried to rival The Beatles’ Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band, released six months earlier; many critics say that it instead sounding like a pale imitation.

Pink Floyd – The Piper at the Gates of Dawn

Pink Floyd was one of the most influential bands of the psychedelic rock era. Formed in 1965, the band rose to prominence with their 1967 debut album, The Piper at the Gates of Dawn. The album was a critical and commercial success, reaching number six on the UK charts and number 131 on the US Billboard 200. The Piper at the Gates of Dawn is now widely regarded as a classic of the psychedelic rock genre, and its artwork is an iconic example of the style.

The album’s artwork was designed by Hipgnosis, a London-based design studio founded by Storm Thorgerson and Aubrey Powell. Hipgnosis was responsible for creating some of the most iconic album covers of all time, including Pink Floyd’s The Dark Side of the Moon and Wish You Were Here. The artwork for The Piper at the Gates of Dawn features a photograph of Pink Floyd’s drummer Nick Mason surrounded by snakes, spiders, and other creepy-crawlies. The image is meant to symbolize the chaos and madness of the psychedelic experience.

The artwork for The Piper at the Gates of Dawn is just one example of how Hipgnosis pushed the boundaries of album cover design. If you’re a fan of psychedelic rock or simply want to see some mind-bending visual art, be sure to check out Hipgnosis’ website.

Psychedelic Rock n Roll Art – The New Wave

The Psychedelic Art Movement began in the early 1960’s as part of the counter-culture revolution. The art form was used to promote peace, love, and free expression. The style is often associated with the hippie movement and is characterized by bright colors, abstract patterns, and often used trippy imagery.

One of the most iconic psychedelic bands of all time was The Doors. Formed in Los Angeles in 1965, the band was fronted by singer Jim Morrison. They released their debut album Strange Days in 1967. The album was a critical and commercial success, reaching number three on the Billboard 200 chart. It included the singles “People Are Strange” and “Strange Days”.

The Doors were known for their controversial live performances, which often included Morrison improvising sexually explicit lyrics. This led to many venues banning them from performing. Despite this, the band continued to be popular with fans and released a string of successful albums throughout the late 60’s including Waiting for the Sun (1968) and The Soft Parade (1969).

In 1970, Morrison was found dead in a Paris bathtub from an apparent heart attack. He was 27 years old. The Doors continued to tour and release albums without him but never achieved the same level of success as they had with Morrison. They disbanded in 1973.

Jimi Hendrix – Electric Ladyland

Most people think of the psychedelic era of the late 1960s when they think of rock art, but the truth is that the genre has been around since the early 1950s. Psychedelic rock art is characterized by its use of bright colors, often inspired by hallucinogenic drugs, and its geometric patterns.

One of the most famous examples of psychedelic rock art is Jimi Hendrix’s Electric Ladyland album cover. The artwork was created by British artist, Karl Ferris. Hendrix was closely involved in the design of the cover and wanted it to look like “a cathedral of light”.

If you’re a fan of psychedelic art, you’ll love these examples of psychedelic rock art from some of the most iconic albums in history.

The Grateful Dead – American Beauty

The Grateful Dead was an American rock band formed in 1965 in Palo Alto, California. Ranging from quintet to septet, the band is known for its unique and eclectic style, which fused elements of rock, folk, country, bluegrass, blues, gospel, modal jazz, reggae, experimental music, psychedelia, and space rock[1][2] for live performances of lengthy instrumental jams and setlists of their own original songs. “Their music”, writes Lenny Kaye,”was the anarchic fusion of the blues with Folk and Rock … drawing on Country Joe and the Fish[3], or modulating feedback guitars ala Sonic Youth … Filtered through the consciousness of Robert Hunter’s writing and Jerry Garcia’s playing”.

The band’s fan base grew steadily throughout their time together; many of whom referred to themselves as “Deadheads”. They have sold more than 35 million albums worldwide. The Grateful Dead have been ranked 41st by Rolling Stone in its list of “100 Greatest Artists of All Time”.[4] The band was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 1994 and a recording of their May 8, 1977 performance at Cornell University’s Barton Hall was added to the National Recording Registry of the Library of Congress in 2012. Their 1974 record American Beauty was inducted into the Grammy Hall of Fame. In 2015Uncle John’s Band from American Beauty was inducted into Native Language Music Hall.[5]

The Grateful Dead have influenced a number artists including The Marshall Tucker Band,[6] Phish,[7] Jerry Garcia Band,[8][9] jam bands such as moe., UMPG holds worldwide publishing rights for The Marshall Tucker Band catalogue which includes hits such as “Can’t You See” and “Heard It In A Love Song”
