Moonalice proudly presents the short documentary film series “PAPER, INK and ROCK ‘n ROLL – A History of Posters”, that will bring you closer to the many Moonalice Poster Artists and their work.
The fourth installment in the short-film series features poster artist Dave Hunter, who moved to San Francisco in 1985 and has been involved in the Bay Area rock art/music scene ever since. Initially Dave helped to organize and install rock poster shows at the Psychedelic Shop and at the Artist Rights Today benefits, before he went on to work as head picture framer for The Fillmore at the Bill Graham Archives from 1988 till 1992. From this rock art rich background Hunter began to create rock art for San Francisco Bay Area bands, record labels and venues like the Fillmore. Dave has further returned to his roots in printmaking, creating silkscreened posters for the likes of Metallica, Sly & The Family Stone, Gov’t Mule, The Decemberists, Throbbing Gristle, The Neville Brothers & Dr John, Moonalice , Les Claypool and many more. He currently lives and works from his studio in Fairfax, CA, supporting his young daughter and a healthy art habit. He is an alumnus of the California College of the Arts in Oakland/San Francisco and the Center For Electronic Arts in San Francisco. www.gammalyte.com
