In the late 60s the Art Nouveau style enjoyed a comeback and Bob Masse was at the heart of the revival. He and his peers created wildly imaginative posters to promote concerts and political rallies that are now considered classics of their age, Rolling Stone magazine recently voted him as one of the top 25 sleeve designers.  Still working today, Amplified and Bob Masse have teamed up to release a range of t-shirts featuring some of his original art work. His figurative designs feature women that are sensual, erotic, and dreamy and probably spent their Friday nights hanging out with Lautrec and his crowd knocking back Absinth down at the Moulin Rouge. Perfect for any rock-chic with a dreamy 60s hippy side to her character, wear them with your beaten up skinny black jeans and old boots.

To read more about Bab Masse….

Bob Masse is from Canada’s west coast and has been producing concert posters since the 1960s.

While attending art school in Vancouver, British Columbia, he began his career doing posters for the folk acts that came through town, in exchange for free drinks, tickets, and the opportunity to meet the musicians.

As folk became folk-rock, and Vancouver was visited by such bands as the Grateful Dead, The Doors, the Jefferson Airplane and Steve Miller, Bob continued to produce memorable concert posters for these bands, and helped pioneer the emerging psychedelic art genre.  He was greatly influenced by the art and music scenes in Los Angeles and San Francisco, where he spent considerable time in the late 1960s, producing posters and album covers for various bands of the day.  His work from this time is highly sought by collectors.

Bob’s designs reflect his interest in the art nouveau movement and the work of Alphonse Mucha in particular.  While he employs many of the techniques of that period, his brilliant colour palette, unique lettering style, and bold composition give his art a signature look.

Bob continues to produce pieces for contemporary performers, such as, Tori Amos, the Smashing Pumpkins, Neil Young, and many more.
