Lee Conklin, born July 24, 1941, first moved to California in the late ‘60s after returning from service as a cook in Korea. Although he worked as a security guard at the time, Conklin hoped that he would one day make a living through art. Upon moving to San Francisco, Conklin began designing posters for various groups, most notably Bill Graham and the Fillmore. Using vivid colors and fantastic imagery, Conklin truly captured the feeling of the psychedelic era in his graphic art. He continues to work as an artist in Columbia, California where he lives with his family.
