“With the help of partner Marty Geramita, Hess broke into the world of collectible concert posters, ‘a funny little community’ of art hoarders. Many of them convene at Flatstock, a poster festival held in conjunction with music festivals like South by Southwest in Austin, Texas, and Bumbershoot in Seattle.
A Newsweek story came next. Thanks to the growing popularity in the early 1990s of Spanish-born poster artist Frank Kozik, who settled in Austin and began producing a prolific body of full-color, limited edition silk-screen posters based on that city’s booming music culture, the magazine tracked down similar artists. The magazine declared them part of ‘the second coming of the rock poster,’ a phenomenon rooted in San Francisco’s psychedelic scene in the 1960s.”
