Legendary Australia graphic artist, illustrator, art director and musician Ian McCausland is set to have a retrospective of his poster design work open this Sunday at the Dancing Dog in Footscray in Melbourne. McCausland has had a major influence on the design of Australian music posters and cover art over the past four decades.
Not only has he created work for top Aussie acts which include The Aztecs, Daddy Cool, Spectrum, Company Cane, Chain, Skyhooks, Matt Taylor, Dragon (the list goes on and on) his fame extended overseas with tour poster design for The Rolling Stones, The Who, Rod Stewart and the Faces – his Rolling stones 1973 Australian tour poster is considered an all time classic. He also spent time as an art director for the great Australia Music magazine Go-Set in the early 1970′s before moving onto Mushroom records in their formative years.
A week long tribute to McCausland is being held showcasing some of Ian’s greatest work at the Dancing Dog in Footscray. Ian will be there selling signed prints of some of his iconic posters on the weekends and he will be in and out through the week. The show is FREE entry and fans are encouraged to come down to the opening or pop in during the week to share rock n’ roll war stories with Ian. The Dancing Dog has a friendly bar and beer garden.
