The Big 5
By any account the major creators of the San Francisco Psychedelic Poster as we know it are Wes Wilson, Stanley Mouse, Alton Kelley, Rick Griffin and Victor Moscoso. Known as the Big Five they were co-conspirators and often collaborators (particularly Mouse and Kelley). The prominence of the poster revolution was indeed recognized very quickly during the time it was happening as the Big Five displayed their art together in a “Joint Show,” which opened on July 17, 1967 at the Moore Gallery in San Francisco. Each of the five artists created a poster exclusively for this show." - after that, have their names and have them be links to their landing pages: Wes Wilson, Stanley Mouse, Alton Kelley, Rick Griffin and Victor Moscoso
