About this Art
"The butterfly comes from the West Coast Pop Art Experimental Band in
1968. It was a black and white drawing. Then in 2013, I did another
version of it, because I was going to make a poster of it. Then it went
on to become a mural and onto the blotter we see today." - John Van Hamersveld
Alongside John Van Hamersveld's solo blotter editions 1xRUN is excited to present Shepard Fairey x John Van Hamersveld's FIRST EVER collaborative prints of their Psychedelic Andre! Check out all 4 variants here!

John Van Hamersveld is an icon in Southern California culture, or maybe more aptly described as a creator of icons, credited with many graphics and images that identify the West Coast. His poster for Bruce Brown’s classic surf film The Endless Summer is an image that nearly everyone has seen, an emblem for surf culture itself (the poster was included in LACMA’s Pacific Standard Time Exhibition California Design: 1935-1965). However, John’s work goes beyond the surf industry. He’s produced posters for the likes of Jimi Hendrix, Cream, and Jefferson Airplane, just to name a few. He’s worked in more corporate fields as well, adding the classic logo of the Fat Burger restaurant chain to the list. His recognizable hand has spanned an array of cultural niches. For some this reveals Van Hamersveld’s far-reaching influence, and for others this simply validates their understanding of John’s deep roots in the culture that makes up the California we know today. Upon a recent visit to Los Angeles, John and I discussed his new book 50 Years of Design, the evolution of his career, and the joy of drawing and making.
