Official unknown (Big O Posters, early 1970's) printing 27&3/4 x 36&1/2" art poster by legendary Australian artist (and one-time Cream co-lyricist) Martin Sharp featuring a wild-looking Jackson Pollock-esque portrait (based on a 1967 Linda Eastman (McCartney) photo) of the one and only Jimi Hendrix.
The image was originally commissioned in 1968 for UK underground publication, "OZ" and printed shortly after it appeared as a full-page image in the magazine.
Medium-thick glossy stock poster is in very good (B/B+) condition; there are a series of semi-camouflaged (some more pronounced than others) tiny creases/vertical stress bends scattered throughout the image/outer margin area, along with a single tack hole in the top center margin, a moderate amount of edge/corner-tip creasing, a slight curl to the paper from being rolled and a small smear of fun-tak residue on the reverse, otherwise fine.
Absolutely EYE-SEARING Hendrix poster. Read a GREAT blog post about this poster HERE:
