Mark Arminski has been creating posters and art for concerts and cannabis celebrations for decades. Mark will be producing a limited edition fine art event poster for the 2022 HighLifeStyle Show and appearing all weekend to sign them, along with showing other canna-inspired art.
“Of all the great modern concert poster artists, Mark is the master of color. Studying the wide range of his images, one can see that time after time after time he has chosen his color combinations very carefully, and invariably they work well together, produce effects which please the viewer’s eye. Also his excellent sense of linear design consistently has created simple, balanced images which will have lasting appeal for generations not merely as memorabilia for the acts listed on them but as brilliant examples of graphic art. People will hang these posters on their walls long after the performers listed on them have passed into history. The long term values of these Arminski posters also will be enhanced by the fact that , unlike the press runs for posters created for many of the big promoters, the press runs for these posters and handbills were relatively small, usually only a few hundred, creating a natural scarcity. They are not just fine decor for your dining room walls. They are a great investment which should mature in value in decades to come. Furthermore unlike the vast majority of modern concert posters which are printed by machine, these are silk screen prints which historically have proven to be much more desirable.” – Eric King, author of Concert Poster Rarity Guides
Mark Arminski began to design rock posters while still in secondary school. He drew inspiration from well-known regional rock poster artists, such as Gary Grimshaw (known for his posters for the Grande Ballroom and MC5) and Carl Lundgren (known for his posters for The Who and Jefferson Airplane). Arminski’s posters feature striking color, beautiful lettering, expert shading, and light usage (seen also in his etching and canvass pieces). Since then, Mark has been consistently working on commissions such as CD covers, concert posters, paintings, fine art prints, drawings, murals, and even commercials. His inimitable style and designs have been viewed by millions worldwide.
Arminski has always been interested in pushing boundaries and expanding his creativity. He never wanted to be pigeonholed into a single discipline, so he has always pushed himself to create new and unique art. Sometimes this art is whimsical, sometimes it is controversial, but it is always interesting.
Since he began painting, Mark Arminski has developed a unique style that incorporates features of several different disciplines. This allows him to create art that is both distinctive and recognizable. Arminski’s work has been featured in a number of prestigious galleries and he has won many awards for his work.
If you are searching for an artist who is constantly pushing boundaries and expanding his creativity, then Arminski is the artist for you. Mark can execute a “classic” for a mural in an upscale Motown bistro, or body paint a living female model in front of cheering onlookers – without missing a beat.
His career continues to flourish, thanks to the interest of and commissions by rock personalities like Kid Rock, but also by his fine art which tip-toe’s the line between titillation and fear, magic and ecstasy, and the sacred and profane. Now it is not just “rock art” aficionados who are fond of and who collect Arminski’s work.
