What initially interested me about Victor Moscoso was his use of photographic montage in his rock posters — very unusual during the time in which psychedelic posters became commonly used. It is something that I have thought about including within my own FMP: having an image altered in a way to make it look psychedelic — colours complementary and eye-catching that you cannot look away.
What I don’t really particularly like about Moscoso’s work is the style of typography he uses for his psychedelia rock posters. Unlike Wes Wilson’s free moving text that curves around the image that is central in the poster, it is rectangular (similar to what Wes Wilson use) but smaller.
What would make this much more interesting is if he followed Wes Wilson ‘art nouveau’ stylistic font and combine it with his interesting use of photographic montage to create an amazing psychedelic poster. But now, me getting inspiration from both Wes Wilson and Victor Moscoso I can create my own poster by using Wilson’s interesting font and photographic montage of Moscoso’s.
