Legendary concert promoter Bill Graham referred to Stanley Mouse as one of the most important figures from the 1960s. Grateful Dead drummer Mickey Hart calls Stanley Mouse “part of our mythology.” Creating images such as Zig Zag Man, psychedelic posters for the Fillmore Auditorium and the Avalon Ballroom, the skull and roses motif for the Grateful Dead, and the flying horse for the Steve Miller Band’s album Book of Dreams, Stanley Mouse has created among the most iconic artwork of our time. His art has come to visually represent bands such as the Grateful Dead, Big Brother & the Holding Co., Steve Miller Band, Jefferson Airplane, The Rolling Stones, Paul McCartney, Jimi Hendrix, and Journey, among many others.

Stanley Mouse will be attending the opening of his exhibition at Govinda Gallery which will take place on Monday, April 13th from 6pm to 9pm. This exhibition presents a rare opportunity to see the original art of Stanley Mouse. Stanley Mouse’s original drawings, paintings, and lithographs are available to collectors through Govinda Gallery.

“Stanley Mouse drew and painted from inside the music. The spirit that drove the music of the ’60s was the same spirit that drove his art”
