All In The Family: Courtenay Pollock

From one-of-a-kind t-shirts to custom-ordered backdrops for the Grateful Dead at the Greek, Courtenay Pollock's unique tie-dyes literally and figuratively made the scene in the 70s and 80s. So entranced were we by his "origami on cloth," we enlisted him to bring symmetry to our Sunshine Daydream box. Get to know the extraordinary artist in this exclusive video and view some of his greatest and latest creations in the gallery below.

Unreal man!:)

Wow, I'm "only" 55 and didn't realize that Pollock was behind the psychedelic designs of many of GD's shows, etc. I was always wondering who was doing the backdrops in their shows. Now I know. It's true, I can see all the universe in my MYNDE when I listen to the Dead and see all of the beautiful colours around their music:)

Greek '81

still my all-time favorite! Though I'm often blown away by his more recent work too. The colors and patterns are so cool.
