Wes Wilson, Psychedelic San Francisco Poster Artist

Robert Wesley Wilson was born in Sacramento, CA on July 15, 1937, and eventually found his way to San Francisco State where he worked at a small printing press to put himself through school. While working at the press, the demand for concert posters and handbills exploded with the advent of the Haight-Ashbury movement of the mid-to-late 1960s, and Wilson was more than happy to oblige the skyrocketing demand.
