The New York-based art venue Spoke NYC will be presenting ‘Helikon’, a new solo exhibition featuring the works of the legendary San Francisco-based artist Chuck Sperry. The show will not only have on display a new set of screen printed posters from his ongoing ‘Muses’ series, but will also have a selection of rare gig posters from the artist’s personal collection.

In addition to the these, a new monograph titled ‘Helikon’ will make its debut at the exhibition. The book will be a fascinating compendium of the artist’s works over the years, which — with their psychedelic art nouveau style — have garnered him legions of raving fans.
