‘Rolling Stones 1973 Australian Tour’ is a Giclée Print by contemporary artist Ian McCausland. Printed onto heavy card, it is signed by the artist.
Melbourne based artist Ian McCausland is famed for his iconic 1970s music posters for world famous rock bands. His aesthetic has a distinctly retro flavour, which has gathered a certain prestige over the years, like a fruity, vintage wine. McCausland is perhaps best known for his ‘Rolling Stones 1973 Australian Tour’ poster, which he has recently released as a limited edition print.
The iconic poster depicts a cartoon image of plane shooting around the globe towards Australia, whose green landmass stands out in relief against the bright blue ocean. McCausland has imposed the famous Rolling Stones lips and tongue onto the country’s surface, as the plane heads into the open mouth, fantastically capturing the significance of the tour with style and panache. It’s bold, brash and inescapably cool: a must have for the Stones fan, the retro music collector, and anyone with a keen eye for the iconic.
