About this Art
This RUN does not come with a framing option.
NOTE: This RUN does not come signed or numbered.
Over the years we’ve met quite a few collectors that share the same passion for subculture and collecting. These passions culminate for the us by collecting specifics artist's, iconography and imagery that shapes each of our collections. On the rare occasion we’re asked to offer vintage items on the site, and we have from time to time. Well last week profoundly changed our lives and we’re excited to share that will you. After spending a few days learning about the stories of 1 collector that has been in the game for the past few decades we found signed prints from many of the artists that built the foundation for collecting art prints. With the likes of Bill Graham, Gary Grimshaw, Coop, Derek Hess and beyond, stored safely in flat files, we sifted through and pulled a few hundred prints. Now that we’re back home we’re doing our best to process this collection, grade for quality, photograph and add to the site.
In January 1969, after a year of being rejected as a poster artist by Chet Helms at the Avalon, 23-year-old Randy Tuten took his portfolio to the Fillmore where Bill Graham immediately hired him. Tuten was partial to traditional advertising styles, Graham was bound to receive his work as something considerably more akin to his own taste.
Born in San Francisco, Tuten moved with his family to Los Angeles and grew into a rebellious teenager coming of age in the late fifties. Like Griffin, he was a self-taught artist who was into surfing and cartooning. In junior high, he could be found seated in the back of the room decorating classmates' notebooks. The art teachers,who recognized his talent, cut deals with the other departments to give him passing grades in exchange for doing art work for their classrooms. While attending Los Angeles Valley Junior College, Tuten worked for the art department and regularly cut other classes in favor of hanging art exhibits in the college gallery.
